      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      CO: $70.73 (141.5 bb)
      BTN: $36.56 (73.1 bb)
      SB: $50.25 (100.5 bb)
      BB: $50 (100 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $57.78 (115.6 bb)
      MP: $50.39 (100.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with Q A
      Hero raises to $1.50, MP calls $1.50, 4 folds

      Flop: ($3.75) T 3 Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, MP raises to $6, Hero calls $3.50

      Turn: ($15.75) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $8, Hero folds


      Anon table.

      MP played 32/26 after 35 hands, 3bet 17%.

      Flop? His valuerange mainly TT/33/QTs, maybe QQ sometimes. Plus flushdraws and some straightdraws.
      Would be better to just give up? My plan was to ch/call him down on any non- turn/river.

      Hi.

      Flop: Don't think we can ever fold flop here. He could easily raise with too many gutshots and flush draws.

      Turn: This should be a fold without further info. We are completely lost on Rivers and he may/may not continue firing and we have absolutely no idea.

      I think we could consider calling with a single club in our hand, mostly for blockers and maybe some redraw potential.

      Thanks.

      Should this also mean, that we ch/call him down on blank turn/rivercards? Like fold on any /K, J/9/8 are in the grey zone, and all others are mainly good for us?

      It's kind of hard to say vs an unknown, but I think calling down when all draws missed should be fine. I would assume these days that people are capable of 3barreling some air and busted draws.

      We also have the option of check/jamming blank turns, especially if it brings a 2nd flush draw like the 4 of diamond. It's not so much for value, but just for protection when the pot is already so huge and we don't want to face a nasty river card.

      Bad Turn cards
      If his raising range is mostly flush and straight draws, then yes, a club or a King is really bad for us. Agree with what you said.
