      villian plays vpip/pfr/3bet/agg :22/13/2.3/2.3

      i think checking back the turn was the right play since i beat most of his range at showdown because by shoving, i dont get any value from worse hands and if i get called i'm always the dog. but the real problem comes when Q completes on the river. his bet size looks like a value bet, and the only hands that can value on such a board is Ax, flush, or QQ. i dont see any bluffs in his range, and he is unlikely to value any other made hand on this river.i think i made the right fold here. please advise

      If you think he is not folding there AQ/AJ I think your line is fine
      If you think you have some fold equity I think shoving turn would be better.
      If get called you have likely always 6-9 outs and sometimes you can also add 2 outs to trips, which is a lot to c/f turn
      So when I check I think I´m going to c/rai rather than c/f.
      River: fold is likely ok, don´t think he is bluffing there too often and AQ is quite big part of his valuebet range
