      Turn easy fold? Villian is 16/13 so i think most of his cc range oop are PP and if he has a set im drawing dead. It also doesn't make any sense to bluff in this spot since 8d doesn't really change the situation, and with a flushdraw i think he'd be raising the flop.

      His value raising range is narrow here - sets and that's about it. I don't expect him to call OOP pre with hands that make two pair here. So without reads I'd usually fold even tho it may look weak, but instead of checking you did bet, so you have something worth of some value and he really has to trust he has enough FE to warrant raising with FD, but will 16/13 do that often enough on turn?
      Calling can be an option if you really know he can be semibluffing often enough, but whether he does that or not - it's up to what you have seen this far.

      Good luck!

      If you don't think he's calling with hands like KQs/QJs preflop your best play is actually to check the turn, because his calling range is virtually nonexistent. Pocket pairs that didn't improve will put you on a Q and fold, and sets with check/raise you. It's probably limited to like exactly AsJs.

      By default however he's probably still calling with those suited Qx hands so bet/folding is fine. 16/13 is never check/raising the turn with draws when you 3/4 pot it on a blank.

      Hope it helps.
