A disappointing cash

I just finished my seventh event of the 2007 WSOP, the $3000 limit Hold 'Em. I made the money but then ran out of luck and cashed in 21st place for $7761. At my last table I played a pot against Phil Hellmuth, who still didn't know my name after four years. I reraised his early-position raise in the small blind with QQ and he raised my flop bet on a board of King-rag-rag and I just called, intending to call him down. He checked behind on the turn and I checked the river hoping he would bet. He didn't and showed Ace-Queen, well played to lose the minimum and get the free card.

If you are on the button and he is early-position how does he check behind on the turn and how could he bet after you on the river?

Oops, right you are. I was in the small blind. Corrected.

I am confused, aren't you never supposed to check the river? Shouldn't you either put in a bet low enough so that he will call or high enough to make it seem like a bluff?

1) No.
2) This was limit Hold 'Em. :)
