An interesting hand came up in 1.20 SNG. I'm not sure if I played it right, but it was a crying call in the end. I really didn't feel he had a spade but could have been wrong. Fortunately and I escaped w/ half the pot. Thoughts on my play?

Stacks:
- BTN with 1170 - SB with 2150 - BB with 1350 - UTG with 2910 - UTG+1 with 1650 - MP1 with 680 - MP2 with 1560 - CO with 2030

Bets werent enough to push you off what you had. I think you made the right play. Was cehap enough to keep calling it down. Good hand and good split nevertheless!

A bet on the turn probably takes this down.

To be honest you were the one who had control of the hand because you raised preflop, with only two people in the hand i would have put a bet in on the turn just to feel out the situation, he might would have folded but he definitely would have let you know where he was at that point, if he took some time and just called your bet, then you put a 1/2 potsized bet on the river and take it down
