      river his sizing was weird. If he has flush, he is proably always betting turn. Can I put him on Qx? If he wants thin value, then he is often betting smaller.

      Also I could have bet river smaller myself to get thin value from weaker Jx, but on the other hand - not much weaker Jx there.

      You can´t bet turn and river for value, so I like check/evaluate line. Since you have showdown value then I would call river. A lot of Qx hands would bet turn and there are some draws (for example T9) that he might not bet turn. If you´re loosing then likely to QTs/AJ and sometimes cleverly played flush/boat

      best regards,
