      Just cbet flop with overs + backdoorFD against unknown fishy guy?
      As played, what do you think about turn raise? After he called, I thought I can make him fold hands like 76s/65s/87s/66/88/99 on the river, but I'm not sure about Qx (probably wont fold).

      I'm defintiely betting Flop and barreling Turn. And Bluffing the River.

      Given the line you took, you are repping something like AQ mostly. I don't think his range is that well-defined. He could have both flush draws, some 67s or 56s type of hand or QX, maybe some mid pocket pairs even. Given that the Ace is usually perceived as a scary card vs a fish, and so is the completion of the flush, I don't really mind betting.

      While I think it is kind of hard for us to represent a flush here (and by betting we mostly rep AQ which is a really narrow range), I don't think this is all that important.

      Honestly he doesn't seem that fishy to me but if you think he is fishy then I think it's alright to try attempting to rep the Ace or flush, which he will probably give a lot of credit to you for if he has worse than a Queen. He has a low WTSD too which indicates that he is a tight guy.
