      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q K
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, BB raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.28

      Flop: ($0.80) 8 Q K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.36, Hero raises to $1, BB folds

      I don't want to donk, but maybe this would have been a good time.
      I want him to stay in with worse, like AQ, TJ
      I can't imagine better folding.
      Is x/r a good idea here, and is there something better?

      I assume you are playing 100bb effective at NL5, which means there is no need for a check raise to get it all in, although we can consider the possiblity.

      in a 3betpot like that its very likely he is going to CB, especially on a QKx board. and he is porbably betting every draw (straight and flush draws) and i like checking to him on this flop. as for check/calling or check/raising, i think most hands that his this board is probably not folding and check/raising on this board actually looks kinda weak so i like it. we expect Kx, Qx and a number of draws to call and possible even jam over us.
