      I would bet half pot vs such a shallow stack. We also want to risk less with our cbet bluffs. Betting large just encourages him to fold hands worse than QX.

      Turn is a clear check. His preflop range is so tight, and his fold vs cbet flop is so low. I think he almost always have QX here at the very least, and vs a very tight range of stronger QX and flush draws, I don't think we can have a profitable c/c here. So I just check/fold/

      So this boils down to whether we even have a profitable cbet in the first place. Cbet bluffing is definitely very +EV vs this guy. But if he just folds so often then maybe we shouldn't cbet this weak QX hand on the Flop for value.
