      Hi,


      Unless MP2 is loose enough to force CO not to c-bet, i'd check/call the flop because it's a prime spot for CO to c-bet with all his range. If i donk out for some reason i'll go bigger than that, at least $1.1.

      As played villain's line screams set unless he's capable of taking that line with a worse Qx hand or a draw, which most of them won't. Either fold the turn or shove on him, calling doesn't serve a purpose especially if you're shoving the river into him anyway.


      Hope it helps.
