I think i like the fold.
yes, but this is a perfect example where the OP IS actually considering playing for stacks. He now has a straight and has absolutely no idea what to do bec of his passive (read: awful) line preflop. There is a difference betw Q8s and Q9s/QTs as the latter two can make nut straights. That may seem like splitting hairs for some of you, but it isn't. You have to draw the line somewhere. Again, IMO raise and Iso pre >=fold>call. Raising pre makes all of your decisions so much easier on all future streets. I'll ask again, if OP Iso-d pre w Q8s, is this even a thread? or do you think I'm simply being results-oriented?
