I feel like folding on the flop is too weak, and later I'm just glued to my hand.
I think on the flop he can x/r with QQ, 88, 55 and AQ - then I have 53% equity.
I don't raise cause I don't want to throw away his bluff or spazz range.

Only a bad player (imo), would raise AQ here, unless it's AcQc. I do see some flushdraws in his range AQ, KQ,QJ, AJ.

From what I have learned, a raise like this means trouble. I agree folding is a bit weak but calling is not very appealing as well, neigher is 3 betting. maybe fold after all...

The 5 on the turn would be very bad for flushdraw, but still he leads, so I'm out for sure
