I would raised on the flop and on the river all in. Its easyer this way because pressure is on your opponent and your stack is twice as your opponent. Even if you lose, you are still in the game and waiting for better situations. Quite often when your opponent raises on the flop he has AK which in this situation totally missed the flop. Its best to make him pay if he wants to see another card

I agree totally with Whiskerer - put him all in and then you can quit with the guess work and give him the tough decisions.
He may be on a draw himself and you can push him off or make him pay (more)
If your not already ahead then you've still got plenty of outs.
Short stackers are normally week players, especially at these low limits and I've seen them play and get frisky with all kinds of rubbish. There's no way I'd fold here and check calling on 2 or 3 streets in a hand is usually a chip burner. Put the heat on the short stackers and start raising and check raising them when ever possible ( and sensible ). This is a perfect spot to put the pressure on him.

Medvedev, maybe you missed this but it is 3 handed. Sure I don't have a read on the opponent but you can't just play tptk. Top pair with, well, with more than no kicker when you are this short handed. He could easily have a lower queen or even a lower pair. So I don't see the upside to calling on the turn. I think you will have to call on the river since you get 4:1 on your money, and he will push with anything that beats you since he is this short stacked. As I said the only thing you can gain by just calling him on the turn is allowing him to fold a missed draw on the river. And I don't think folding on the turn is an option, the only hands that you don't have odds to call, even if it was an all in is a a straight. And I really don't see how he could overbet the pot with with a gut buster on the flop. So I think the only way to go is to push on the turn.

I would have raised there, because you have top pair and straight draw and flush draw and you maybe have best hand because there was no raise preflop and not muc action on the flop , so Just raise with that strong hand, even though he has the best hand you have plenty of outs to win him , two pair , str8 or flush

Its pokerstars so you never hit if you got plenty of outs but i think you have to raise here you got a big hand and maby hes bluffin and you win the pot by a big reraise and if he calls you got so much outs that you have to hit .. and if you hit he never think you got a straight or flush
