      BTN: $15.89 : just ~15 hands; VPIP/PFR 28/0; no specific info
      SB: $22.11

      Pre Flop: ($0.30) Hero is CO with K :club: K :heart:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, BTN calls $0.60, SB calls $0.50, BB calls $0.40

      Flop: ($2.40) T :diamond: 3 :diamond: Q :club: (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $1.80, BTN raises to $15.29, SB folds, BB folds, Hero...

      Is this closer to calling or folding?

      I think you should bet bigger on the flop to start with. $2 seems good, it's only 1bb now but think how much bigger the pot gets on the river actually.

      As played, I think it's closer to a call than a fold. You will be beat sometimes but I expect QQ to 3bet preflop. You also don't have to be ahead of his range, I think Qx, flushdraws and straight draws make up enough of his range to call this shove.
