His bet on the turn is very very weak I think you absolutely have to raise there, if he goes all in after you raise you can probably give him credit for a queen. As played I like that you just called behind on the river but your big mistake was just calling on the turn.

Nah I actually like the turn call. Looks we can get away from a queen extremly light if he has it. I think it was fine, we arent getting called if we raise, and we get some extra value on the river from it.

very wa/wb type stuff.

I'm fine with the turn call too. In addition to what TB says, at these levels and especially this early I see a J doing this and then shoving over a turn raise in a desperation attempt to push you off if you don't have a Q.

I don't know, I don't ever play $2 sit and goes but I can't see anyone without a queen coming over the top and shoving on the turn. I would expect to see him call and check on the river but you guys could be right.

My first reaction was that the turn call was fine, but then I reconsidered. The wa/wb theory is applicable if we're way ahead and villain has very few outs, but I don't think that is the case. Villain could have easily been on a flush draw, in which case we want him to pay for the last card. I think I would raise the turn, I think he would have called anyway.
