      On turn this is perfect card for him to 2nd barrel but he decided to give up. I don't believe he has Q so I bet and it might easily look that I am floating. Now he decides to raise - I think - he thinks I am floating, so he raises, so I can call.
      But if he is smart he could c/r for value as well with made hand - because he is almost guarantied that I will float if he checks, and if he bets himself, he will force weak hands to fold.

      Now on river - if I didn't believe he has Q, I had to call I guess, but I guess this is a fold, because if his bluff didn't work on turn, he should give up. Only one reason to call - to see what does he have and take a note. But its litte bit expensive - still 30 BBs when we know we are 99% beat.

      So the conclusion would be - no need to bet turn, becuase I turn my hand into a bluff? If I know that he could try to rebluff me then ok to bet turn.

      What do you think about my thinkingss? :)

      You think to much. Turn is bad card for you. If you expect him to check/r check turn and you still have showdown value so why turn your hand in bluff ?

      If he is agressive and capable of this kind of bluffs, simply do not bet =) besides that, u can induce some bluffs on river. he might put u on low pocker pairs or flush draw.

      after check/raise turn u are dead. I would fold there.

      I´d rather raise flop and play for stacks than call flop and then b/f that turn card
      Prefer b/f turn to get value from medium pp-s that he would c/cb and I think he would take that line with AQ/KQ or QQ-AA.
      If you don´t want to b/f turn you can always just check behind and then call river bet.
