      This.

      If he had potted it you might have thought about check/calling since it's doubtful this guy would valuebet 8x/99-JJ that strong with the 2 Q's out there so if you're looking to a polarized range of busted diamonds/busted 97/KK+/Qx, your 6's are good enough to bluff-catch.

      When he ~2x overbets it however without reads I wouldn't mess with it, he's bluffing sometimes but usually not nearly enough for us to look that up.


      Hope it helps.
