      flushdraw is possible, dont´think he has there straight too often
      Not sure how often he´d call with QJ on the flop, likely not
      So that leaves flushdraw and some Ax hands. Since I hate usually folding two pair I would call turn and evaluate on the river if I want to call shove

      Holy no!

      His coldcalling range on flop is at least flushdraw, set, AK or AQ. No way a turncall is good, your equity is so terribly little that there is nothing you can do but fold. If you call turn and hit the boat, your hand is face-up and will not receive any further value. So no implied odds as well.

      well if you give him that range then indeed likely we should c/f turn, but I tihkn set would mostly 3-bet flop, since he doesn´t really want us/bb to see free card
      Player has to be really nit not to 3-bet BU with AK and even tight players tend to 3-bet with AQ. So yes our equity is bad against AQ and flushes, but I think our equity should be bigger if you add there some other Ax hands and A5. If you don´t think he can ever have there these hands then fold is better than call.
      Don´t agree that we don´t have implied odds against flush, since players dont´fold flushes on pair board.
