      I think it is fine.
      Q sucks. If he called w/ worst hand PF (AQ, KQ), you are beat.
      If he called preflop with smaller pair (say 88 - JJ), he would probably defend on flop and shove.
      It really looks like an ovepair or AQ, KQ.
      So, being OOP, c/f is fine IMO

      Let's see what judges think.

      AQ/KQ should fold on the flop, so imo his range is a lot to medium pp-s that he didn´t want to shove on the flop
      I think you have enough fold equity to b/f turn for 11$ and fold to shove

      imo u cant fold turn if u bet (it looks like ur pot comited), but on other side this is cash game so u bet 11$ and if he shove u fold and save ur self 7$ and reload, couse he might float on that flop and after ur check he is trying to take that pot down

      i dint mean they float with air
      he might call flop with 2 overs JT, 78, AT, AJ flush draws etc

      but check fold is ok too
