Pre-flop is standard. I don't think you can ever raise post-flop, or bet for value, so I like your line. If villain had better bigger on the turn, I'd consider folding, but at that price I think you have to call. He's unlikely to fire 2 streets with overs on a 4-card rainbow (unless you have a read that he does that with AK), and the only made hands you're beating are TT and the somewhat unlikely A8s. If he bets the river, it's a fold. As played, checking back is good, because I don't think a typical 5NL player is folding QQ+ if you turn your hand into a bluff.
Well played, imo.

Bracelet Winner

Something important to remember here is that if villain fires the river it's a clear fold.

3betting an utg open and firing 3streets on a low board means we are beat almost always. If you have some info on the villain it might be a fold ott also. Wp though, would have done the same.
