      I think preflop, flop and turn are fine. Perhaps bigger bets on flop/turn?

      On the river he can have 67,56,66 and i`m not sure if he will bluff with missed FD. => fold

      I think you can raise larger on Flop and Turn. River is a really tough spot, I don't mind the fold and I think you can defend with stronger hands like sets. Besides you have Q which is bad for you cos he cannot have so many Q:hX busted flush draws now.
