      not sure about the flop , but if possible, we would like to get heads up and define our hand somewhat. I don't think the second barrel is correct against two loose/passive opponents. once we are a heads up on the River, what do you think of the bluff Value bet. I think we can get villain off Qx types of hands and obviously the :club: flush draw. It is pretty hard for villain to call without a T, or two pair on this River, I guess.
      I guess we have some showdown value, but I doubt we are ahead enough to play check/call.
      our bet has to work 37% of the time.

      board is getting quite scary for Qx, that he may easily fold that hand to your river bet and you likely don´t want to call potsize river bet, so i think betting yourself is quite good idea there
      He´d fold his draws and also often Qx hand
