just sat down and got QJs in BB. villain 6 opens for 2.5x and villain 2 calls. based on their stack sizes i assume they are inexperienced players and decided to call with my suited connectors thinking i might be paid off in case i hit something, plus im getting decent pot odds.
flop comes T77 with two clubs fiving me a FD and 2 overs.i check, villain 6 cbets around 2/3 of the pot and villain 2 folds.
what now?
do i continue on a paired board?(scared paired boards when having a FD).if he has an overpair, i still have some resonable equity
do i raise or call?
how much should i raise and if he calls and the turn is a non club, how should i procceed?

Hi espada,

This is a good flop for you. Villain raised pre in EP, and he'll be c-betting this flop with 100% of his range, which includes overpairs and big aces. I'm calling on the flop to try and make a flush. Raising could lead you to get shoved on by an overpair, so I'd just flat. I wouldn't necessarily be too pleased if we make top pair queen on the turn, as we'd still be losing to QQ+ and TT.
If we're solely chasing a flush, the only hands we need to worry about are TT that flopped a boat, and AKcc that will over-flush us. So call and see if you hit the flush. The turn might give us some more outs to a straight to go with the flush draw (a 9 would be good, but a K could give villain top boat). If we miss on the turn, and villain makes another decent bet, I'd probably give up, because I'm not sure if we can win a whole stack if we hit one of our outs, as it would be hard for AA/KK to call a river shove if the board is paired and there are three clubs on the board.
In summary, while I'm always wary of chasing flushes/straights on paired boards, I don't think villain has a boat on this flop very often, so I'd at least see the turn.
