      Q: How to play the turn&river?
      The turn is nice, but then again it is not nice (if the opponent had Qx). After CO checked on the turn, I bet for value on the river.

      Flop: Pot bet!
      I realise it'll be hard to make the villain fold here if he's holding a queen for an OESD but actually, that's exactly the point. Make him pay for his draw...

      Turn: I don't like the check there, you want to get information and you're not getting any like this. I make a small block bet there, around 50c in this case probably. If I get a heavy re-raise I have to fold my hand there. If he just flat calls you hope for the river card to pair up the board :)

      River: Check/fold

      Turn: You can play here Check/Call because Check/Fold is a way too weak here with so strong hand and in other way you really can't Bet/Call here, that would be a bit wasting of money because he could easily have the Q here also Bet/Fold would be a bit too weak, so Check/Call is the best line here.
      River: As he checked behind on turn it's fine to put a bet here but it's Bet/Fold.

      Best regards,
