      Flop is fine, you can also just call since it's not too often SB will lead/fold that board and you shouldn't be trying to take him off Qx.

      On the turn I don't really buy him having 8x when he takes that line. People lead/calling and then making the same lead on the next street usually have hands that didn't improve on that street (tricky guys might take the same line even when they did improve tho). Not to mention it's way more common for people to check/call the flop with 8x instead of leading out as well. So I'm more likely to put him on Qx or a flushdraw.

      Which is why I'm virtually never raising with the 7high flush on the river. He could easily have a boat or a better flush when he leads out for 3/4 on the flushing river, since he's not doing that with Qx unless maybe it's exactly QJ. Sometimes he might have 8x as well but rarely in my opinion. Sometimes I'll just fold against passive players, unhappily calling when in doubt is okay tho.

      Hope it helps.
