      Hello cutegoldfish,

      It's kinda close but I guess his line is very strong and unless I have good reason to continue there I wont, rather fold is likely safer, he could easily have there any kind of set/2pair which he is betting that strong into us.

      Best regards.

      Wouldn't it be better to bet/fold on the turn? That way if they're drawing we protect or if they have a Q we're betting for value.

      Yep, definitely Bet/Fold should also be totally fine like $3.
