      Well you can't C/C. Well you cant but then you have hard decisions on turn and river if his aggro and barrels a lot.

      You can however turn your hand into a bluff and B/F even tho you never make a better hand fold or a worse one call you, but you do prevent him from bluffing you out of the best hand and you will be betting this board as a bluff 100% of the time anyway.

      I´d likely bet 3$ and then c/f turn, since nl 25 players won´t float me too often with QJ/QT/TJ especially if we hold QQ, we don´t have really that much equity against Ax hand and he should play quite straight forward on AKx board, since our 3-bet range is very strong that point
      If you check you can consider c/c once and then c/f turn and river, although c/f flop is also fine. Just I´d likely would c/c once since I´d expect him to take one stab with 65s and then check it down
