      Hello clandestineAl,

      Well, actually it could be both. Those guys play as well flushes this way, especially those loose guys as which happens to be here. So therefore either way is fine. While we don't have much information on the opponent folding is most likely the safest play. He could still think "I need to protect my flush". If I had Q here then would be much easier to Call.

      Best Regards.
