      BU 17/12/1.4/0.0/54/103hands

      Standard flop/turn?
      Before this hand he had faced a cbet IP once & raised. Not much of an indicator, but worth mentioning.

      I guess turn is just a fold if he barrels.

      OTR I don't think he has hands like JJ or Tx that would call a valuebet so I checked to let him bluff hands like J9 AK AJ KJ etc.

      BTN: $126.46 (252.9 bb)
      SB: $51.80 (103.6 bb)
      Hero (BB): $100.62 (201.2 bb)
      UTG: $71.32 (142.6 bb)
      MP: $136.81 (273.6 bb)
      CO: $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q A
      3 folds, BTN raises to $1.25, SB folds, Hero raises to $4.75, BTN calls $3.50

      Flop: ($9.75) 3 Q T (2 players)
      Hero bets $5, BTN raises to $12, Hero calls $7

      Turn: ($33.75) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($33.75) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      $33.75 pot ($1.52 rake)
      Final Board: 3 Q T 5 Q
      BTN mucked 6 6 and lost (-$16.75 net)
      Hero showed Q A and won $32.23 ($15.48 net)

      I'd never fold here, especially not on this turn. His valuerange is very narrow, and he would probably not even raise them on such a dry flop. He could have some straightdraws (AJ/KJs/J9s/98s), or some other hands he turns into bluff.

      After he checks turn, I would definitely vbet river. I dont think he would bluff such a rivercard very often if he gave up on the turn...

      You should definitely lead the river. You'll be surprised to see the kind of hands people call with. When the queen pairs it's much likelier that you are on a busted straight draw so I think villain may very well herocall with AJ/AK here. And you probably wouldn't be valuebetting thinly with AA/KK/TX.
