That's part of the big problem I have with Limit - I can't "lock in" what the opponents might have. Limping the PF in MP doesn't tell us anything, other than the fact he probably doesn't have two rags or a big pair.
He bet the flop with K-Q-T out there. That usually would mean he has a Kx, Qx, KJ, QJ, TT or already hit the straight (I don't think a lonely J would bet, but at this limit, I suppose they could). His bet on the turn again suggests one of the above possibilities, except maybe he wouldn't bet a Q. So the most likely hands I give him on the turn is trip K, fullhouse, straight, or two pair KQ.
Of course, his check on the river means he can't have any of these hands - why would he check - leaving me to think he was semi-bluffing the whole time. But because our Hero had to act first, this isn't part of the information available for this hand.
