      Hey!

      Do you have any reads on villain? Maybe against some players you might just wanna shove the flop.

      However, calling here is a sensible option if you're not sure who you're dealing with. I'd rather fold the turn however. This is way too marginal to call. I don't think he has anything less that AQo here and sometimes he's gonna have us totally crushed with something like 55. Of course we still have some equity left, but against a strong value range, our equity isn't enough to justify a call.

      The only way I'm calling this is if I know the guy is very spewy.

      Here's how our equity looks:


      Board: Qs 5s Th Jh
      Dead:

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 23.064% 23.06% 00.00% 274 0.00 { KcQc }
      Hand 1: 76.936% 76.94% 00.00% 914 0.00 { AA, 55, AQs, QTs, Q5s, T5s, AQo, QTo }


      Cheers!
