      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      Hero (SB): $50 (100 bb)
      BB: $104.76 (209.5 bb)
      UTG: $31.50 (63 bb)
      MP: $77.70 (155.4 bb)
      CO: $50 (100 bb)
      BTN: $57.73 (115.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q A
      3 folds, BTN raises to $1, Hero raises to $4.50, BB folds, BTN calls $3.50

      Flop: ($9.50) 3 4 Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $5, BTN calls $5

      Turn: ($19.50) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $10, Hero calls $10

      River: ($39.50) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $30.50, Hero folds


      Bet/fold turn, ch/fold river would be a better line?
      On the turn I thought betting would be quite thin, KQ got there, worse PPs (JJ-88 mainly) could easily fold, with betting I could get one street of value mainly from QJs/QTs.

      Well, I think you fold out 99/TT/88/77 almost always. Your sample size is too small for me to accurately guess his PF calling and Flop floating range.

      But as played, assuming he doesn't get tricky and fancy, he is repping only KQ with his turn and river bet. I think it's fine to fold. You'll need to call if he turns 88 into a bluff in this spot, which I wouldn't know. Would he valuebet AQ in this manner when you check to him? I'm not sure. The stronger he is, the more likely he is capable of betting for thin value (since i think it is really unlikely for you to have KX).
