If I raise anywhere its on the river when a SD is cheaper to reach for his pp's, its easier for me to fold to a 3-bet and my line looks the most like BS.

I don't think I raise at all, but if I do it's on the river. The trouble with raising is that I don't think I can lay it down to a 3 bet against an aggressive opponent like this. Plus, if this guy doesn't have a queen he is often barreling with nothing and will fold to a raise. If he does have a queen I think we all know what happens. I say call.

I would just go ahead and raise/calldown the turn. I like the flop play because button is probably drawing very slim. After he gets out of there, I think you pass up too much value by not raising the turn. This will be a flush draw or small pp very often imo. Unless you have seem him make this play with air into a preflop 3bettor, he will have something that's at least seeing the river, if not showing down a lot. Since he is relatively unknown, I cannot fold this hand to a 3bet.

I play it like this as well. This guy looks decent, which lowers the value of a raise in my opinion. He might be doing this with A high or a small pp, but he will probably fold those to any raise.

Yaaaa, okay, I am like the raise more then. This line is a small pp a lot of the time. They will call a river raise too because your line is strange and people don't like to fold.

Easily the best value play is a raise on the river, if he's bluffing all the way he will fold to the raise but we don't want him to stop firing. Plus this line looses the least to a Q.

I think we should raise/call the turn here. Guy donking that flop and betting the turn has a flushdraw, mid pocket pair, or a 3 way more than he has a queen and a player like you describe will call (or even possibly 3-bet) all of those hands on the turn and will likely pay off a river bet with any pair because you obviously have a flush draw yourself.

Just calling down on this board is leaving lots of money on the table IMO
