      On river I dont see too much value in betting, so I decided to turn it into a bluffcatcher. There are busted FDs.

      Turn: I would advocate betting half pot or 1/3 pot. If you think villain calls most TX and straight draw combos vs a half pot bet then you can bet here. IF villain is on the tighter side then you should bet even smaller. This bet serves as a blocker bet/cheap showdown vs stronger JX, a thin value bet vs TX and draws, and a pot building bet if you do hit your flush on the River.

      Of course if your opponent is aggro and will bluff raise the Turn, then such a plan goes out of the window. He seems bad though, since he doesn't have a full stack.

      River: I would c/c vs a smaller bet but vs a pot bet you should fold. You need to win 33% of the time and I Don't think he has busted flush draws that often, especially when you have 2 spades yourself. Passive fish are also less likely to pot air; they usually make weaker bets.

      The Queen also further coordinates the board, completing some straight draws or giving villain some pairs/two pairs.
