      On the river I check because that queen really kills me, as not only AJ but now even AQ beats me.
      My intention is to check/fold, but his bet is very small, and I thought maybe something like KQ, QT could have done it (as an almost-bluff), rarely AT.

      I completely agree the Queen is a really bad card. If it was a blank River I would probably bet the River again.

      And I think your play is fine. Probably check/folding to a larger halfpot bet. I don't see him calling both flop and turn with too many draws besides stuff like KhQh. And I think he wouldn't necessarily turn QX into a bluff. I also expect this guy to check back the River with worse AX most of the time.

      But vs this small bet I think we do win 20% of the time so I do not mind calling the River bet.
