Default tough 55 hand

No reads. Villain seems fairly tight preflop and has folded the blinds several times.. I hate the turn bet. Thoughts?

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $1.00 BB (6 handed) converter

saw flop|<font color="#C00000">saw showdown</font>

MP ($99)
CO ($101.40)
Hero ($98.40)
SB ($34)
BB ($139.70)
UTG ($107.65)

Preflop: Hero is Button with 5[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 5[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, CO calls $1, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to $5</font>, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, <font color="#CC3333">BB raises to $10</font>, CO folds, Hero calls $5.

Flop: ($21.50) K[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 9[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
BB checks, Hero checks.

Turn: ($21.50) 5[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
BB checks, <font color="#CC3333">Hero bets $12</font>, <font color="#CC3333">BB raises to $24</font>, Hero calls $12.

If villain is fairly tight pf a min-reraise followed by a check oop in a KQx flop scares the hell out of me.
Do you have any idea what he thinks of you? Have you been raising a lot from the button?

I think a bet 15-17 on the turn is much better.

I think this one of those situations where I would do that and regret it after analysing the hand later.

Why not 3 bet that turn? KQ isn't going anywhere.

snipes: KK and QQ aren't going anywhere either, kiddo.

and KQ doesn't min-reraise preflop.

I bet more on the turn and 3bet his raise. As played I call the river. The only hand I am worried about is QQ (KK is also possible, but very unlikely). He could also have a flush. I cant find a fold here.

I've been there less than 30 hands. I've opened from the CO a few times and taken it down. But my image is still tight. I was trying to isolate the crappy CO player, and this was my first raise with limpers. So I don't think he was playing back at me preflop.

I rather like most of the line, outside of the weak turn bet. I fold this river as well, as the whole thing reeks of a higher set. I guess AK is a possibility too, but I really doubt AK would check twice on that board.
