      I think this is a no brainer bet and it's not even close.

      When should we bet the Turn?
      1) When we have additional equity
      2) When the Turn card improves our perceived range and doesn't improve our opponent's range.

      In this case we have flush draw + overcard so our equity is really good. We didn't improve our equity in this case but we already had so much of it in the first place.

      Queen is a high card, could potentially scare him off his weak pairs like 7X or 66/55. I don't think he should be folding 8X or better cos that just seems really weak but who knows?

      Also we don't mind if he calls. If we do hit the flush the pot is bloated even further anyway so we can win more money.
