      AFq F/T/R 50/43/25
      WtSD/W$SD 29/50 (small sample though)

      Being oop, and 200bb deep, is it OK to ch/call on such a board? I dont beat that many combos here, and this is the best hand I can ch/call with.
      If he bet river, I would have felt terrible though... Should I call him down anyway, cause I'm at the top of my range?

      These boards hit his range hard and I prefer taking a morepassive lline like you did and check call, we can get raised and we are deep and our hand cannot stand raises.

      River is interesting though. We now beat QJ and behind QK. Basically the pairing 4 strengthen our hand a little and we can consider calling if the bet is small enough. We could be ahead often enough as he value bets some weaker hands like QJ and maybe Kx.
