      HI,

      I don't know here I thought that maybe he was holding a smaller pocket pair, there are 5 pockets below 7 and 4 above. How probable is it that he is holding a Q? Could he have something like A10+, judging by the play before my shove. How would you play this?

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      On the flop, being four-way, I prefer checking here. There is quite a good probability that someone has a better pair or Qx, plus the majority of the turn cards will be overcards here so we will have hard time playing on the later streets.

      As played, I would check/fold the turn. I don't think that this guy calls the flop with overcards, and small pockets are most likely to be folding in my opinion.

      Best,
      Plamen
