      I watched gold video about balancing in this spot this week, and there is teory that we should call in this spot with top off our range in gray area witch would be AA,KK and fold bottom (JJ,1010) and now i am sorry for not calling:( . I think his range is polarized in this spot to pps(Fullhouses) and busted fl draws, dont think he has Q very often here .

      Maybe it's better to avoid this situation in the first place, by bet/folding turn, ch/folding river. He is passive, so we wont be bluffed out very often, and he could even call us with some PPs on the turn (our barrel is not really credible, as another Q also lowers the possibility us having one), which he would def checkback on the river.
      This way I'd rather fold on the river as you played, really looks like a vbet with Qx (which is definitely in his range having 6% PFR... KQ/QJ/QT/Q9s).

      Hello dzikson999,

      Agree that Bet/Folding is much better cause you are rarely going to Check with your Qx hand in that spot. :( If we are turning our hand into bluff-catcher then should also Call the river.

      Best Regards.
