      Bet. He is not on K and most probably not on a flush either.
      I'd use a bet/fold line here too.
      If you check he can bluff, now if your 100% confident he will do this and that your ahead go ahead and c/r or so.

      That is horrible.. only c/r rivers with nuts or total bluffs. c/r on this board will only be called when beaten. There is no value to get.

      check/call seems best at river.

      Why don't you c-bet flop?
      Turnbet can be smaller, 1.3$ is enough.

      I said if your 100% confident, which means playing with reads etc. against a reg. Yes it is a terrible line against unknowns.

      I don't get your point. If you want him to bluff c/call is the line to take. You're not gonna make extra value c/raising this river. Assume you want to c/r river to represent a flush and get him off a Ax type of hand? Even then it makes no sense as the board is paired and our opponent can have a flush himself.

      Oh yeah... c/c is the line.

      I mostly prefer betting instead of c/c if i have bet turn and got called. I've seen so many hands check behind on river that i could have got value from.

      Qx, smaller pockets than QQ ... thin valuebets usually get called.

      Bet flop, yo have fold equity+ good enough equity if called.
      As played: bet river for value, you´re ahead there a lot of times.
