      BB: 62 BB
      Hero (CO): 100 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has Q:heart: K:spade:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, BB calls 2 BB

      Flop: (6.4 BB, 2 players) A:spade: 3:diamond: T:heart:
      BB checks, Hero bets 3.6 BB, BB calls 3.6 BB

      Turn: (13.6 BB, 2 players) 9:club:
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: (13.6 BB, 2 players) Q:club:
      BB checks, Hero ?

      I opt to bet somewhere around 7BB as I think that he would bet all aces and strong hands by himself fearing that I would play check behind.

      Turn: This could be a bet, with a gutshot but it depends on the opponent. You should be less inclined to bluff vs a calling station type of player.

      River: I think it's thin. I guess we can rule out some of the stronger AX hands in villain's range. I would probably check back here since you are probably never more than a 55% favourite or you could even be an underdog.

      If you do want to bet here, bet 1/4-1/3 pot to widen villain's calling range sufficiently such that you are getting called by worse hands on average.
