      He is having wide range, so with my equity I decide to raise.

      I think betting turn is bad because once he called, he has picked soething and Q changes nothing, he will not believe I have Q and will call very light with draws and 9x.

      My sweat session partner disagred and said to bet to rep the Q if I remember correctly. The thing was I took long timing so because we were dicussing, he said I had to bet quickly if I want to rep Q.

      Hi Speed,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: This board is actually rather connected and our equity is not the greatest. I think that if we raise we should make it slightly bigger since he does get decent odds (having to call only 4 BB) and we rather take down the pot now.

      As played betting the turn is definitely bad. I think that we have close to 0 FE against his flop bet/calling range.

      We play against a fish so trying to "rep" a Q doesn't make a difference if he has a hand that he likes. He has plenty of Qx in his range and other pairs that won't get scared on this card (along with draws).
