      Hi,


      Once you start check/calling against an unknown you shouldn't fold on that river. If you don't want to check/call two streets, just bet/fold the turn, this is going to be a better line in a vacuum, unknowns suck at valuebetting and them checking behind a ton of worse Ax hands on the turn while only betting Qx into you would be a horrible result for your hand.


      Hope it helps.
