      Hello alexgrapid,

      I guess without having the Q, I'd just fold it. Against any pair+ we at the best get a flip. But we could already be against a stronger hand or whatsoever.

      Also for the reason that we need like 35% equity to make it profitable. But I don't think that we would get it that often.

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 27,293% 25,323% 3,939% 70,737% QsQc
      Player 2: 72,707% 70,737% 3,939% 25,323% JhJd, ThTd, 88-77, AdKs, 9d8s

      If we put him on something like that. So you see we ain't getting that good equity. And sometimes we might even be already vs flushes and would have even worse equity. Just for example put his hand into the equilator what he had and see if you get the 35% and it's only against 1 hand.

      Although when we widen up a bit his range and add like 99:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 43,450% 41,793% 3,314% 54,893% QsQc
      Player 2: 56,550% 54,893% 3,314% 41,793% JhJd, ThTd, 99-77, AdKs, 9d8s

      We might even make it profitable.

      Best regards.
