      Hi,


      I'd just call down against that player, if he has KK+ or (doubtful) some kind of bluff, the only way we might spook him is if we raise that turn, so i don't like raising. I would if i had a better Qx because then we might also cooler worse trips, but as it is i don't think he ever raises a worse Qx than ours preflop so I'd rather keep worse hands in by just calling. Hopefully he valuebets worse on the river.

      As played exactly, unless he's a huge moron he won't continue without Qx+ so when he 3bets we beat nothing, making our raise almost worthless to begin with. Maybe if you know he'll call the minraise with KK+ and than cry pot odds and call off on the river it's okay, but that's about the only scenario where we get value from a worse hand.


      Hope it helps.
