      Hello w4terman,

      Well, I'd actually make the decision right on flop, there is no point to Call and give free cards for the opponent. I'd just ship it on the flop or just fold the hand. Depends really on the opponent, if he is rather tight-passive then I might even find a fold but if even looser side and might even play draws aggressively then I'd just ship the flop since he has a lot of draws and Qx hands in his range which are even worse.

      Best Regards.
