      opponent has 67% vpip. i guess he could have been betting the queen or any 2 pair or a busted flush draw.

      Dicey without any idea of how aggressive he is. I'd tend to call the river getting nearly 4:1, most players with a high vpip usually aren't too aggressive and are incapable of valuebetting Qx unless they're just making a scared blockbet to see a showdown, and if he was an aggressive fish I'd have expected him to donk out with Qx earlier in the hand. I think you'll see enough of busted diamonds there to make that call okay overall against the 67 vpip guys pool.

      Hope it helps.
