      I'd definitely float the flop. You're in position and it's not all that likely he has a Q. Conti-bets don't show strength. However, the second barrel on a fairly blank turn shows strength. I'd probably fold it then.

      Hello Krishjanis,

      There ain't gonna be many hands what we beat on the turn anyways. Only hand some kind of draw and that's pretty much it. Neither you didn't point out what kind of opponent we are against and I tend to think that people don't 2barrel a lot on those limits I am giving it up. Especially if you can't give it up on the river you should definitely fold it on the turn.

      Best Regards.
