I hate not reraising PF here. I hate not raising the flop here.

Edit: I missed the third person in there. That makes it closer to a call on the flop but I probably still raise. But I've raised PF so things are different.

Bump for morning people. I am skeptical of the line I took here and I appreciate other comments, the harsher the better!

I think that you're ahead... but I like calling the turn because a) you might not be and b) there are more river cards that will likely help you than hurt you.

Not very deep analysis, but I like just calling the turn. Your call will likely be quite scary to him if he does not have a Q. If he is ahead, you have the club draw going for you now, so I'd just call.

Ha, I just re-read the title of your post... I don't really see the 3rd club as a scare card. It's a heads-up pot, I don't see any reason why I wouldn't like a 4th club to come on the river.

You absolutely have to raise on this flop to find out where you are at. If you don't you will play a guessing game to a large turn bet and u will have wild fluctuations in your play usually coming out behind. I also think u can raise preflop but finding out where u are on the flop is of utmost importance. If you are just called you can begin to put him on a range on hands. Then bet the turn and check behind on river. Of course, if he comes over the top along the way or pops the river into you then you gotta lay it down.

I just disagree with this completely. I probably 'raise to find out where I'm at' less than almost anybody on this forum. Sometimes calling is just fine, and I think that this is one of those spots.

Raising to find out where you're at can get pretty dicey when it involves crippling you in the process. We've got position on the villain, calling the flop seems fine to me. Let's see what develops on the turn. The turn, I would just call as well.

Keep in mind that the flop may well be scary to the villain as well. Let's not give him too much credit. No need to raise this flop, IMO. Then again, I don't have a problem making a difficult call now and then either. Alot of the chips that I make are made from playing hands from behind and letting people bluff into me.

With position, I like calling the flop here and seeing what develops.

Perhaps u can escape without raising and I am missing something. Thing is, if you dont raise you really havent put any fear in his heart so you don't know what his large river bet will mean right (because he will bet again)?

You don't raise to find out where you are. You raise because you probably have the best hand and because you're vulnerable to a number of turn cards. Raising to "find out where you are" in a shallow-stacked game like SNGs is usually a bad idea.

Thing is, there's really not that many turn cards that scare me here. Four kings and four aces. Two of which give me a high flush draw anyway.

8 cards is enough to scare me. It's more than 8 anyways. You can't just ignore the flush draw out there.
