      Or don't players bluff often enough on the river? And maybe he can vbet AQ?

      I dont like 3betting preflop oop with QTo. Does he fold a lot to 3bets? Even then we could use some better hands for that, it's not suited (fewer barreling opportunites), doesnt have good blockers and is easily dominated by a calling range IP.

      Postflop I'd ch/call turn, but most likely ch/fold river. We dont know if he is capable of turning hands like TT/99/A:dJ into bluff, and all Qx beat us (AQ/KQ/QJs). Sizing also looks more like value.

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Obviously he is value-betting his AQ there. :P And of course also KQ/QJ. So his range on the river is kinda capped and he really has to call you down with wide range to Check/Call both streets. Though without much information I would most likely end up doing that whils tyou never know if he decided to turn even JJ into thin value.

      Best Regards.
