      hi DrRaab

      since it is so standard to check-to-the-raiser, BB can easily check with a Qx or 7x hand. most likely he is check/calling here with a Qx hand. the flop is so dry and it is unlikely he is floating OOP with total air.

      on the turn i think the best option is to give up. you may have turned a gutshot, but barreling is only really a good idea here if you have fold equity. if he has Qx (which he does a lot of the time after check/calling this flop) then he isn't folding.

      Hello DrRaab,

      We ain't going to make many better hands to fold anyways and nor Qx hands. Whilst we have position and getting a free card then lets just abuse it and Check behind. :)

      Best Regards.
