      I considered bluffing this river as it was likely to be a scare card.

      The way the hand was played I expected him to show Qx and figured he couldn't find a fold unless I bet it big.

      Seat 1: Hero ( $11.72 USD ) - VPIP: 32, PFR: 26, 3B: 7, AF: 2.7, Hands: 24156
      Seat 3: Player3 ( $8.82 USD ) - VPIP: 75, PFR: 50, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 4

      Hi Phil,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I wouldn't expect only Qx in his range but also pairs just as JJ/TT/88/77/66 maybe even 5x and of course draws like 67/78 and possible even A3/A2.

      Since we don't know if he is a calling station or not (and if he can fold JJ or TT for example) I'd probably check back as well. We beat all the draws that missed anyway.
