      Hello clandestineAl,

      Nope, the turn just made our hand a lot weaker. The Q made us less likely to even have a hand. Rather just give it up and let it be.

      Also I would sometimes even doubt that I'd even CBet such a board vs small stack like he. Since we rarely will have fold equity against any pair/draw.

      Best regards.
