      Hi,


      Depends how loose that guy is, his bet sizing doesn't really feel me with confidence that he has anything strong enough to call me down with, so i don't really mind letting him spew into me. If he's limp/calling a ton, like enough to have any Qx, stacking worse Qx hands probably trumps the value we get from him bluffing, in which case you likely need to just raise the turn and go with it.

      As played you got 2 outed, shit happens ;)


      Hope it helps.
