      Hero wins 16.65 BB

      he is unknown

      Is cbet ok? If I play check call, it would be difficult, since so many cards are bet. So I hope he just folds.
      On turn, I try to fold his Qx, Tx hand, and plan to check fold turn. I am not sure if it is better check fold turn?

      Definitely checking here and calling at least one bet. It gets difficult if you don't have a balanced checking range. But if you check some KQ hands like KdQc then it won't be too tough to play with checking here.
