      Depends a lot on the player. It's hard for him to have Jx and he won't put much more money in with TT-/AK unless he improves, so you're basically balancing the risk of him being scare off QQ-KK by K/A overcards with the risk of him folding QQ+ since a raise would look super strong.

      At nl5 i wouldn't give credit to players for folding QQ+ and there are more combos of those hands then of AK which will only improve to a top pair a small % of the time on the turn. You should probably get it in on the flop against most nl5 players, and play it like you did against players who are likely to fold at some point against a raise but will continue to valuebet if you just call.

      Hope it helps.
