      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, I don't really like the idea of Checking on flop & turn there. Rather start betting right on flop & turn yourself. :) We ain't gonna get much value anyways by Check/Check line.

      As played, well into exactly such a spot you may bring yourself. What kind of hands do you expect him to 3bet on the turn? It's gonna be towards strong made hands, at least Qx and nothing else. Could be also 88/55/Q5/Q8. So for that given part I'd most likely Call the turn as you played and might even consider folding on the river while I just can't see many worse Qx hands being there. :( It's just a freeplay pot, not worth investing that much into the pot.

      Best Regards.
