      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, the guy could easily even have worse Qx in his range and maybe even worse 2pairs. I'd myself just ship the river against unknown, but of course against that kind of opponent who is winning 75% of the cases in showdown your line might be considerable.

      Best Regards.
