      I think i had to raise on the flop to protect and see where i stand. Instead i called. It was hard to put him on J on the turn so called thinking it was probably split. On the river he overbet which was little strange...Should i call the river? I didn't put him on KK or AA there since he was going to 3 bet it.
      P.S. This guy got lucky against me few times...hitting flush vs my trips and i was kind of emotionally involved more than i had to in this hand. :)

      He mostly has a Q or the other J here I think. His AF is too low for much else to play this way. Certainly not anything you can beat I think.

      The river overbet looks like a typical "bluff" for value with quads.

      In any case, you are either splitting, or beaten. I would fold.

      He has no reason to c/r turn with Qx, he could do that with draw or bluff.
      I would likely also fold river, since he has a lot of times there Jx.
