      Do you think I should give up on the turn. I think my bet turned my hand into a bluff. If I bet that turn I feel I should have bet that river as he is more likely to have Qx than Ax

      You're turning your hand into a bluff on the flop to an extent - by the turn it is clearly a bluff.

      For this reason I don't mind a flop check. You can represent you are giving up and call at least 1 street.

      Your bet sizing on the flop is too large. If you are planning to double barrel certain turn cards it often makes sense to bet a little smaller on the flop to keep your opponent's calling range wider. Not to mention this is a dry board and you should be betting smaller in general anyway.

      Given your flop sizing I don't really like your 2nd barrel in this spot, but theoretically the Ace is an ok card to barrel.
