grunch:

This seems like a very clear check/call down. There isn't a card that can fall that makes the board any scarier than it already is (maybe a club?), but he can make this same play with a T or a Q.

Mathematically, he's more likely to hold the Q, right? We don't want to get pushed off our hand, so we just call, check/call.

yeah, if he plays all Qx on a QTT4 board the same as he plays all Tx. obviously this isn't the case.

this guy has a ten very often - if calling down is correct it is only very slightly +EV and only because he is an unknown.

Why would he play this way with a queen?

If it were that simple, hands like this wouldn't be an issue.

Mainly because you're just not winning often enough.

You're getting about 6:1 to showdown assuming MP2 calls the turn raise and you put in one bet on the river.

I think you'll be winnnig often enough to take that price, but you're not winning often enough to put in 3 bets (or more) to get there.

If you did happen to 3-bet the turn and were capped, I would think you would have to fold. If you go call/call you put in the same amount of dough, but you get to turn your cards over and see who wins.

I'd definitely call down against an unknown at my current limits. I'm inclined to believe that at 5/10 this is a T more often than it is in micro-limit. Without much 5/10 experience I'd probably call.

protected pot turn c/r's are almost always the goods, especially on turn blanks

I'm pretty sure this is a fold

There's also the scant 5% of the time that you river an ace to pick up a pot that you would have otherwise lost by the 3-bet-fold line. There's something like .5-.7 BB to be picked up there.

Grunch:
I think call turn, Ck/c river UI. Wouldn't bb rr flop with a T? Villians turn Ck/r looks like T or Q4 or 44 or not. Maybe clubs + Q. A call down may just cost 2 bb and you will know what he had. Or catch your As and take it down.
