      Nice hand but oop so It's bets to try and take down the pot there as any postflop play multiway could be difficult unless we flop a set?

      I think you played it fine. Worse hands usually fold and better hands are not callkng often.

      If he bets i think u could consider folding immediately cos he does have qx a good amt of the time. U could also consider callkng one street if he is the type who may stab once and turn a pocketpair into a bluff.
