      You should be the turn for several reasons:
      - if he has a draw he's nor folding to the bet but he might check back. Of course by checkraising you get even more money into the pot, but he still has to bet.
      - if he has some Ax or medium pair you'll never get any value because he checks back.
      - you're at the top of your range, if you're not betting TPTK - what do you bet? this also correlates with the next point:
      - you have a wide perceived range in this spot, so he will not give you credit for 2nd barreling the Q. From that we can derive the next point:
      - Metagame! You want to 2nd barrel the Q with air, so if you check your good hands you will not be able to bluff this card - and you'll have air way more often (~two thirds of the time) so you should make sure to fire the strong hands.

      Once you checkraise the turn vs his draws I think check/calling the river is ok as the range we're trying to get value from will mostly just fold to another bet (or even raise us off our hand).
