Default Flush/straight hand, amount to bet?

This is a pacific poker 2.50+.50 $580 guaranteed (I like the little tournaments). Handgrabber crashed so I couldn't get the HH, but here goes..

blinds 25/50
Hero: 1750
V1: 2400
V2: 1200
V3: 2300

The game is obviously extremely loose. V1 is the SB, V2 is the BB, and V3 is right behind them. I am in MP.

PF: V3 limps, I limp with Qc9c, V1 completes, V2 checks.

Flop: 8c7cKd

V1 checks, V2 checks, V3 bets 50, I call, V1 calls, V2 calls.

Turn: 8c7cKdTh

V1 checks, V2 checks, V3 bets 50, I raise to 300.

River: 8c7cKdThJd

V3 checks, I bet 800 (about half of his stack, just enough of a suspicious amount) V3...

I will post results after responses.

PF: The table had been pretty docile thus far, so I felt it was safe to limp in with Q9s which could potentially flop me a big hand and get me a lot of aquatic chips

Flop: Easy call for flush, but too risky to semi-bluff with general looseness of level.

Turn: with a OESD (with a bonus queen) and a flush draw, a minbet to me means I can try to shoot at the pot. What I question is the amount, but I figured that anything less is an autocall by anyone.

River: Because he called the turn raise, I am led to believe that he is very liberal with his chips. If I bet a little bit here, he will probably call and make me an extra bet or two. If I bet a medium amount, it might look like I actually have a good hand. So I finally conclude, players hate being pushed around in these tournaments, so I should bet big like I want to take the pot down, but not for all his chips which will definitely get him to fold on a 4-straight board.

Thanks for the help. One of these days, I will win a $3 MTT and my dreams will be fulfilled.

I like your line, although I will occasionally sometimes just call the turn. River bet looks good based on the buyin and your perception of your opponent.

It turned out that he called and mucked. Nothing like Pacific Poker tournaments.
