      bet the flop more , about 0.26 $. I think i would play it with a raise on the turn for a free showdown on the river .

      Hi,


      No use in raising "to get a free showdown" since it'd just commit both of us and making him fold some Qx hands while getting it in against made flushes just doesn't look appealing.

      If you think he plays Qx like that call the turn and shove the river for value if he doesn't (expect him to do it with a flush very often). His line looks more like a flush than Qx to me, so otherwise we're mostly calling hoping he doesn't fire the river or that we hit our nut redraw, we're getting borderline implied odds.


      Hope it helps.
