It's marginal. I think I slightly prefer x/folding.

Thing is a Q interacts a fair bit with his calling range on a board like this.

QJ, QT, Q8ss etc.

Hi A Beatmaker

I don't think a one pair hand is strong enough to go for 3 streets of value here. So, checking the river looks to be best. Firstly, you have some showdown value. Secondly, some straights just got there and you no longer have top pair. The question becomes can you check-call a river bet from the villain. Without a read, I prefer folding.

Your preflop bet is bigger than the standard 3bb, but your flop and turn bets look good.

GL and have fun at the tables!
