      I think you played fine. The shove on the river probably means he's got the nuts and the fold was correct.

      Really hard to say against an unknown, but his play is coherent and he has a full stack so if i had to guess i'd say he's a decent player, which means you're likely looking at TT+ or better, or a bluff. Unless you have any reason to believe he can 3 barrel air there, i like your line on that Q river, especially since him potting the turn to shove the river really looks like it's either a bluff or a better hand, not something like TT.

      Hope it helps.
