      Hi,

      I think 3-betting pf would my preferred situation, since then I can represent all the strong hands and don´t have to count only hitting my hand. If you want to make moves I would rather raise that board, can´t really imagine you continuing your hand unless you hit your A or Q and board is so draw heavy that he may easily barrel his draws. So my first option would be fold, then raise and finally call.

      board: 8d5s7s
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      20% 49.51% 93,267 14,426
      AdQh 50.49% 95,257 14,426

      you have there generally 50% equity, so floating can also be fine, just he would likely not going to give up that easily if he is good player.

      best regards,
