      seems fine till river, I like check calling better than shoving (dont think we get called by worse when we shove the river, remember flop was 4 ways so doubt he can hv 77 66 78 and hero call here) but by checking we can get some missed draws to shove into us and checks from some hands that beat us. I dont like shoving here as a bluff as well, so def check call or check fold river, both are fine imo depending on villain. Be prepared to face some tough river decisions sometimes.

      I would check the turn….Firstly, You already put a bet of 140 against 4 more players….he might be having Q.
      Secondly to pot control…. once you fire a decent bet on turn…you are almost pot committed.
      When the flush/ two pair does opens you will shove. When the flush / two pair doesnt opens…you will have to bet/shove and hope he missed the draw or fold weak Q (which he wont) as you did…
      checking the river after betting flop n turn will make your opponent to shove most of the times… and you cant call with 2nd pair weak kicker.

      If i check the turn here… and hope he checks. If I dont flop a flush/2pair on river…. check call a value bet seems good as you have decent showdown hand.
      the tournament just started i think…. you might wait for better spot rather shoving river.

      Adi…. in such cases when I am not so deep…. Is it a better option to check shove… lets say blinds are 50 100
      I have between 2000-3000 stack… Is check shoving pair + flush / flush + straight draw is good??? its almost a coin flip against Q pair…plus we might be able to get away against weak queens. A8 1010 JJ etc…
      Should we do this?? If we can…till how deep we should do it??? if we opened preflop.

      I think betting the turn is correct.. We still have lot of equity in the hand.. I hate to give up the betting lead when we have loads of equity ..
