      Villain is almost completely unknown (8 hands), seemed like a reg to me (25/13 atm, fullstacked etc.).

      Flop is std i guess. Turn bet is std, but he decides to raise. Would he raise Qx's here? I dont think so (maybe, rarely AQs, but im not sure). QT, TT is possible, apart from that, sets would raise on the flop more likely, but he can have a ton of draws here (KJ, any club draw like AcJc, Jc9c).

      I dont really know what to do here, folding seems to be too weak, calling seems bad also, cause i will have zero clue about what to do on the river, so i should shove here for value maybe?

      easy fold on the turn. :f_biggrin:

      just believe in the baluga theorem and you'll be fine, very few players in these limits are capable of raising light on the turn.
      how many backdoor draws is he realistically actually floating oop with? do you do such plays often yourself?

      he might not be repping a lot (more towards QT, TT) but he can still have a few flopped set combos and i don't see him bluffing that often.
