      I was going to Cbet here but once he bet I couldn't figure out how to call. I don't know what he has but I think it includes a Q. He may have checked in with 87 or 68 suited or something. Thought I had to fold as I had nothing.

      I usually like raising when I get donked into on sucha dry flop. Imo he would never be doing this with an 8 or QQ, he could be doing it with a flush draw or he could be doing it with random pocket pairs and air. I raise to about $6.50 and fold to any more action. Unless he calls in which case I put him on a draw or a Q, which you can probably get him off anyway.

      you´re either flippig or way behind against Qx, 8x.
      Fold is safer option and more often correct rather than try to make some kind of move
