Default PLO 0.50/1 - wrap draw UTG

I'm generally OK with this hand...just wanted to see what others thought:

PokerStars Pot-Limit Omaha High, $1.00 BB (7 handed) converter

SB ($97.50)
BB ($94.65)
Hero ($99)
MP1 ($90.50)
MP2 ($216.30)
CO ($20.50)
Button ($257.10)

Preflop: Hero is UTG with 8[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], T[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img].
Hero calls $1, MP1 folds, <font color="CC3333">MP2 raises to $4.5</font>, CO calls $4.50, Button calls $4.50, SB folds, BB folds, Hero calls $3.50.

Flop: ($19.50) T[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 9[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 4[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="blue">(4 players)</font>
Hero checks, <font color="CC3333">MP2 bets $3</font>, CO calls $3, Button calls $3, <font color="CC3333">Hero raises to $33.55</font>, MP2 calls $30.55, CO folds, Button folds.

Turn: ($92.60) K[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="blue">(2 players)</font>
<font color="CC3333">Hero bets $60.95 (All-In)</font>, MP2 calls $60.95.

River: ($214.50) 9[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="blue">(2 players, 1 all-in)</font>

Final Pot: $214.50

I got what appeared to be an excellent flop, hitting top pair and my key card -- I had possibly as many as 19 outs (15 if the flush draw is out there). The flop bet seemed weak, which precipitated the checkraise. I figured that even if I don't take it down now, I can get all-in on the turn if I hit. The only thing that bothers me in retrospect is that I don't know what I would have done if I the turn missed both of us (i.e. was a non-club ace through 6).

Tell him U got the made hand by potting it. He's going for the flush - so put him on that - you have plenty outs even if called.

While i think your line is not bad i would prefer leading at this pot and then if your raised you can move in (or at least have that option)and if he calls you have gotten to the turn with out the pot being too big. The only problem with your line is exactly the one you worried about. Youve left the majority of the money to be bet on the critical street out of position. This could lead to some tricky situations. Sometimes tricky situations are unavoidable though so what are you gonna do...
