      He had 0% fols to cbet - do we still bet there? Since on turn its kinda unliekly that he has J and he would have raised Q on flop I'm bet/folding. He calls. And river brings two paired board. So I think many people is betting there with A high.

      You can go either way on the flop, it depends what he does when he doesn't fold to c-bets. If he raises them you're likely better off going for a check/call since you can't comfortably call a check/raise, if he just calls them too much and doesn't give you much trouble on the turn when you check to him, you can certainly bet for value against all sorts of gutshots/flushdraws/OESDs/underpairs.

      Betting the turn for value is fine.

      On the river I doubt many players will bet A-high, they should be happy to check it down. Since it's hard for him to have a Q we're looking at a few 3x, some Jx he decided to play slowly, and busted draws that he's now bluffing with. Whether it's best to check/call or check/fold depends a lot on how often we think he 1/ doesn't bet a draw on the flop when checked to 2/ bluff with it on the river once he misses. Hard to say from here, check/calling when in doubt certainly isn't bad by any means.

      Hope it helps.
