      I put him on Qx here. Obviously I have to fold the river. I was planning to bet any blank on the river. I think that on a blank river there's fair chance my A-high is good but I don't want to check back and get shown something like Q9/QT. Should I jsut take a more passive line here IP or it my play okay?

      Raise preflop for value, his limping range is very weak.

      As played the flopbet is nice, but I think it's unlikely he folds the turn so I'd check back because even though we're ahead of Qx, they still have some equity and there also are a ton of other made hands in his range that he's not folding.

      As played on the river you have an easy fold. I wouldn't bet a blank river. If he had a draw with Qx we're winning by checking anyway, if he has a made hand I think he's almost certainly not folding it.
