      Ugly turn, but my plan was to check/call turn, check/fold river, because he could float me with flushdraws, Qx, but it's unlikely that would bet twice with worse hand on this board, given his low river aggression.
      Would be better to check/fold turn right away?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Waste of money to Check/Call the turn & Check/Fold the river. Your hand is simply very easy to read cause you will never-ever have Tx hand in your range which goes for Check/Call. Therefore rather 2nd barrel it yourself than turn it into bluff-catcher cause it will be tough to Call the river.

      Best Regards.

      So veriz,

      bet>ch/F ?

      We let him fold all his Jx/Qx and he will continue with mainly better hands than ours
      He can also easily have Tx.
      + If he has a flushdraw he can easily bluff the river with it

      Correct, or assuming that he doesn't have a wide range and the Q might even complete some of his range I'd just Check/Fold it, especially if he is passive. Which isn't the case here. :D
