      Hi farmarchist,

      Since we have position and Q high only we can actually bluff this flop because you won't really get floated unless they have a bigger spade and/or pair+draw. And despite the lack of equity there are many turn cards we can fire again as a bluff.

      As played, since we didn't bet flop or turn how would a river bet look like? I feel that we would get called by any spade hand but since they checked so far they most likely don't have Js+ so a bet now could take it down. If you bet 1/2 pot you need about 33% success rate.
