      I think turn bet is fine
      Not sure if you should put him all-in on the river. You´re not gonna c/f river and he can likely have there Qx as often as draws and not sure he is going to shove draws if you check to him, so I like how you played it
      You can consider c/c turn and then c/f river, but with his stacks size you get very good odds to call him down anyway
