      Hello alexgrapid,

      Preflop: Just fold it here, our hand ain't that strong and if you even don't have a postflop plan then rather don't Call. We wont hit often enough anyways.

      As played
      Postflop: If you want to bet at all then I would do it on turn, betting the turn looks a lot stronger plus we build up the pot as well. In case we do hit our flush. Obvious his 1/2 on flop looks pretty weak, although against your line I still expect him time to time even Call with QQ/KK and those are the only hands we could make him fold.

      Best regards.
