      Hello daisuke3823,

      The thing with river is that if he really had some kind of strong hand then I am pretty sure that he would have taken stabs on us early. And as well if he had some kind of FH he would just ship the river. Therefore it's likely that he has some kind of Qx type of hand in his range, in worst case he might have QT, although even with it he might prefer raising at some spot.

      Therefore I'd just ship the river, although of course shouldn't be really that big mistake if you even Check behind there and take a look at his hand.

      Just if you think of the situation then why should he slowplay QT in such a drawy board vs so many opponents?

      Best regards.
