      This was very tricky. On the flop I was ready to fold, but then with the raise and call I suddenly thought I may have odds if I give myself 6 outs (and maybe a half for runner runner ace high straight) - or do I assume that my outs aren't clean and get out of there?

      You have too few outs here imo, pot odds won't make up for it. There are just way to many players in the pot so you can easily be behing a Q, set, two pair or even straight. I prefer a fold on this flop.

      Hey WildBeans,

      after the action on the flop you need 26.3% BEQ and that's what you have against Q with low kicker, you're already behind a QT+ and you are very likely up against better hands than Qx on such a flop, so it's quite safe to muck here.
