      Preflop: In late positions you definitely need to 3bet JJ preflop and you should be restealing a lot too. He doesn't seem to have overly nitty tendencies.

      River: Do you think a pocketpair is ever calling you here when everything hits? He never folds a Queen, 68s and flushes improve by the River. You may have some A4s type of hand too, and you probably won't be too likely to bluff 78s and 67s.

      In his eyes, you have virtually no air. Thus this is a very easy fold without a queen from his perspective.

      Definitely checking here and hoping he gives up. If he bets, then it's a guessing game I suppose, but you can consider calling QX and JJ since these hands are pretty much at the top of your river checking range.
