      Is your huge flop bet going to get called by many hands you are ahead of? I'd think I was probably ahead and wonder whether to call or minraise (I've seen people call with worse queens, and he could even have a straight draw) . The main hands to worry about are 66 and 77. Maybe QQ also, as you were in EP, so some people would just call. The flop is dry, so very little need to price out draws. Unfortunately all analysis is difficult when players play very badly. :f_biggrin:

      Yes you have to ask yourself this.

      I think you allow him to play perfectly against you since it is soo obvious what you have so he can fold QJ and less

      You also want to keep his bluffs in so you can call Flop, raise turn for extra street of bluff you earn

      Best regards,

      Meh, I know calling is standard but it doesn't matter here, I'll still have to go broke. Are you implying that I call flop and fold turn?

      Anyway I expect a call from any queen after his donk.
