      He has 9.5 which you can expect to win most of the times considering it`s a 1/2 pot bet on river so I think you have the required odds/implied.

      However I would rather shove turn for the rest of his stack or fold depending on player. If he`s unknown I would shove because I expect him to have sometimes a Qx with clubs or QJ/Q7/J7 which would increase our equity .

      I think calling on the turn is fine, especially since you hold nut flushdraw and might be ahead with pair of Queens.
