1-2 game in Cleveland Horseshoe. I limp behind 3 limpers on the button with QTo. Small blind raises to 12 and the entire field calls, so I call also.
Flop is T64 rainbow. All players check to me, I bet 30 into 60, only the original raiser calls. He is a straightforward, poor player, obviously not experienced in playing in a casino.
Turn is a low card like a 2 or 3. There is a big delay as we wait for him to act, but he doesn't realize it's his turn. Finally he checks. I check also (unable to put this straight forward player on a hand that he would raise preflop over multiple limpers and them check-call a dry board. I'm lost)
The river brings a queen, giving me two pair. No flush possible. Villain, this time realizing its his turn to act first, says "I check", and then immediately flips over his cards! He has AKo, no pair. The dealer looks at me and says "your turn to act, you can do whatever you want".
So what's my play? Do I bet some tiny amount that A high might call, or do I bet large and look like I'm trying to buy the pot?
Also, do you bet turn or check (pot was big b/c it went 5 way to a $12 raise)
