      Hello Tatarken,

      From how many worse hands do you get called on the turn which is worse? :) You could easily there just give it up and Check behind, he ain't betting the river anyways with a lot worse.

      Though if you do bet then the idea is to of course Bet/Fold it and give it up on the river if you still assume he may pay you with something like AQ.

      Best Regards.
