Hi guys,

The guy was an unknown. No reads as of yet

Please could you analyse my hand below. Sorry not AK, but AQs

Again, I think that I need to bet the turn, as I want to charge FDs, and not allow them to see a free card. I don't think there is however, many Ax hands that I beat - only really AJ. So I think the river should now be a check once called.

I believe that this is an easy fold on the river.

Line looks fine. I'd only call river if villain bet much smaller. You're crushed by flushes, two pairs and slowplayed sets, so it's kind of pointless to bet the riv, as you're unlikely to get called by AJ/A9, but will always get raised by flushes and have to fold.
With reads, I might take a different line, checking the flop, but this is pretty fancy and quite difficult to do successfully, especially multiway, so the "standard" bet(-fold) line you followed is good in a vacuum.
