      I make a standard cbet on the flop. After villain called, i had him on a pair of Q's. Therefore i checked the turn intending to fold to a bet. I'm not sure about the call on the river, but i actually had him on a missed spade flush draw since he checked the turn (i see alot of players on these micro-stakes making bluffs on the river, when they miss their draws).

      Given the stacks I'd just shove the turn, we can't realistically find a check/fold and we'll just give him a chance to get away from worse hands while jamming better hands on us if we don't put him in. Bad players won't fold much of anything for just a 1/2 pot bet on that card since with their made hands on some level they know it makes it less likely you have a Q yourself and people just can't fold draws.

      As played it's ok he can still have busted draws, tho you'll randomly run into some floated A-high hands / trickily played trips / very few boats.

      Hope it helps.
