Hi Guys,

Should I be folding here in a $1 45 man? The villain probably has a Q quite a bit here. I just felt on this depth of money I had to go with my hand.

Thanks in advance

Really sick, but they're very rarely bluffing here. This is one of those cases where you can't get married to your hand on a bad flop.

Hey DasherF78

I'm also not folding our hand. The villain with KQ has only 15 big blinds to start the hand with, any player with good stack size control wouldn't be calling here so we can safely assume that villain is a weak player.

I think c betting is fine but I don't mind check calling. When we check call we find out extra information on villain 5's hand. If villain 5 folds then were getting it in against villain 8 all of the time. If villain 5 calls then alarm bells would start ringing.

Because the flop is so draw heavy and on the turn villain has less than a pot sized bet in his stack I would like to ship him all in so that we don;t give him a free card. In this spot obviously it doesn't matter a he had the Q but many times our opponents will have all sorts of draws here.

Nice hand, Chris.
