      if you check back turn then you should generally call river
      Although passive players would generally not pot river with busted draws
      I´d personally would bet again for value on the turn and if player doesn´t like to fold then half potsize bet also for value in the river
      He really doesn´t have Qx hands in his range, so my TT should be ahead more than 50% of times
