      He!

      Villain is totally unknown... We can assume he's a fish tho

      Now, what to do on the turn? I don't think I have much FE so I try to price me in. Make it like 3 $?

      I actually think you have more than decent FE and also good pot equity for the obvious reason.

      I think most fish would check/raise a set or 2pair on the flop so you are playing vs a one pair hand with a flushdraw and an overcard quite likely. I would definitely bet quite big and often times bet river as well to make sure Qx folds and not let any T9, JT type hand bluff me.

      Yes tripple barrel is an option vs Qx but don't we valuetown ourselves vs Kx?

      We have 25%-ish against Kx, we block AK, KQ raises before the river, KJ and KT call down, worse Kx might actually fold some rivers. Your range contains sets, KQ, AK so not too worried about my range being too weak that we valuetown ourselves vs Kx.

      It's also to consider the bluffs that he folds. AJ, AT, JT, T9, maybe TT is stubborn on turn, flushdraws (you beat them but can you check/call against a betting range?). You would need him to fold about 40% of the time and if he folds Qx and his draws I think you have a +EV bet.
