      On the river I checked because his call on the turn was draws, 7x and Qx. Other hands like 9x or 2p would bet the flop, especially because by his stats he looks like a TAG. So the check was to let draws bluff, and if he had a Qx he'd bet anyway.

      My question is on the c/r, I did it because I think it's very unlikely he has a better hand than me and he can still call Qx. Is my analysis right?

      if you check then c/rai seems better option than c/c
      he is likely not going to call too many worse hands, but you should be ahead very often so yes c/rai on the river is fine
      Not really sure how often 1,0 af would bet there anything less than Q or busted flushdraw, so I think you can bet out river yourself to get more value against weaker hands than Qx
