      I would c/r this flop.

      As played I would c/raise him on the turn when I catch a fd to go with my oesd. Overcards might be good as well so I'm trying to get it in right there. What's more, we're oop so we have a hard time getting value on the river if we keep calling him.

      As played, I would bet 14$ on the river and ship it if he wants to. It's little sense in calling him down and folding. If you think your :club: outs aren't clean then calling down looks like a bad idea, and on the river it's better to c/c I guess.

      All that is a big IMO :)

      I think leading the flop is a decent idea since he can't continue there with much and he wouldn't c-bet such an ugly texture with air often anyway. Then once you start on that line probably just bet turn shove river if he's c/calling down. If you get raised along the way unless you get good odds you should probably just fold, we could very well have a set in that spot so he might not even feel comfortable raising QQ+, which means when he does actually raise we probably aren't in good shape.

      c/r flop will lead to him calling in position mostly, since his range has to be rather strong to c-bet there to begin with. So we'll be in a bloated pot oop, or worse we might get 3bet.

      As played starting with c/c line, raising to commit ourselves on the turn with ~30% equity isn't really such a good idea imo, his range there for betting twice that terrible texture should be like QQ+/sets/combodraws/nutclubdraw/some bluffs, i'd rather continue to c/c.

      As played on the river i don't really like donk/folding, if i'm betting i'll make it bigger and i'm calling the shove. Such a gay donk bet only serves as an inducer so folding when he jams doesn't make much sense imo. I'd probably just c/c or b/c and suck it up when he shows me a redrawn flush.

      Hope it helps.
