      Flop: not sure if the cbet here is ok - he is probably not gonna fold KQ/JQ/AQ kind of stuff.

      River kinda sucks, but should I fold inspite of the great odds I get ?

      Hello acceleration123,

      Flop: Yeah, like rather just Check it and be happy to see free card. I don't think that he is going to fold a lot of hands here anyways. Rather Calls us preflop with some kind of PP which continues, broadways and which will continue as well.

      As played
      Turn: I'd even consider Checking here since he will anyways have hard time Calling with a lot worse us. And if he Checks behind then bet the river for value.

      As played if turn was Bet
      River: I might even consider betting like $1-1,50 since I just don't see him Calling with a lot worse. Any Qx already makes a straight and so on. But as played I wouldn't Bet/Call there, don't really see many hands what we beat, just Bet/Fold even if we get that great odds.

      Best regards.

      About the flop: If I checked and he bets, would be a call fine ?

      Depends a lot on the opponent. There are spots where I might even consider CBetting if I see him calling light but when he rather has a tighter calling range then I'd just give it up while it's a 3bet pot and Calling would cost us a lot. Even CBetting is better than Check/Calling.
