      PF: Steal

      Flop: On a dry flop, I decided to check and get 1-2 streets of value on the Turn/River.

      Turn: When I hit Trips, I decide to go for 2 streets of value, but can't think of too many hands that can call other than 77-JJ which he might already have 3-bet PF. So I bet a little on the smaller side

      River: When he leads, it feels really strong. 74, 55, 65 or any slowplayed set can be in his range but pretty unlikely the action went. Qx as well but that's the case Queen so also as unlikely.

      I can't think of any hands I can really beat here other than 65 and maybe Qrag. Can I find a fold?

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: On this flop, against unknown I prefer a bet/fold and then we can check turn (by default) to call river.

      As played I'd just call river too with our Qx hand. If we raise we usually don't get called by anything worse. He folds his bluffs/blocker hands and call the rest.
