Default Do my nuts taste salty? 50/100 UB 6 max

I've got 10k, sitting at a 50/100 table with fizzlesticks and a bunch of unknowns. I get dealt KA spades UTG. I pop it up to 350, guy on my left with a full stack calls as well as BB (he had about 5k I believe). Flop comes [10s Qs 4d]. I bet 600, about half the pot, looking to get raised. Guy on my left calls, BB folds. Turn comes 8d. I bet 1500, he calls. River comes 3s. I bet 3k. Guy folds. Thoughts?

I like the flop bet .
How about a turn c/r allin??
I will often check this turn, with the intention of checkraising all-in.
If he checks after, you get a free card,
If he bets, and you shove, it is difficult for him to call without AQ.
On the river i think a bet is fine, as he will be looking to showdown a queen, and if he has a lower flush, which is unlikely..you'll get it all in anyways.

I like the way you played this hand. I dont like the CR allin here. He is most likely on a draw here like you did and you controlled the action. nh

Interesting. I'm not sure I like a turn check-raise- I feel that if the villain was any good, he would see that I'm on a draw and call me with any queen, especially since I made such a pussy bet on the flop.
An alternative line I could have taken is pot flop, shove turn, repping AQ/overpair/set. Do you think this would have been a better line?

j,

Well, you found this hand interesting enough to post, yet claim not to remember who your opponent was and won't disclose your name on the site. This information is necessary to provide any real insight into this hand.

The hand history wouldn't load when I was playing. My screenname is kharybdis, if it makes you happy. Like I said I don't remember the villain's name. Now give me some insight.
