      I usually don't lead out with TPNK on that dry board since the hands people are most likely to call us with are better top pairs, with the random 7x/3x pairs out there. I'd rather check/call in case somebody behind feels the need to bluff at it.

      Turn is fine, river is dicey. Since he usually won't call the flop with anything that could become a busted draw on that river, it's quite likely most of his range there is valuebetting a better Qx hand. Either you believe he's bad enough to float the flop with unpaired cards and/or randomly lead out on the river with bad hands for no reason and you can call, or it has to be a fold.

      Hope it helps.
