      I think it is fine, if you don´t 3-bet pf. but most of the times I´d just 3-bet pf and play for stacks
      I´d only c/r flop a little bigger or might just c/c to not get 3-bet on the flop and then lead turn and river

      If we 3bet pf with QQ, then we should shove if he 4bets? And if he just calls and comes a board J72, we must bet/shove? In a board like this we only beat a bluff... and what about T72? We only beat JJ, KK, AA are ahead.

      generlaly if we 3-bet we're playing for stacks, since players should get all-in with wider rnage than ours QQ. If player seems too tight, then just calling and playing postflop is fine, but then we can't really c/r for value on that board. I think leading or c/c are then better options.
      If he calls and flop comes J72 or T72 we're generally playing for stacks, since he should 4-bet a lot of times KK/AA pf and he can eaisly have there draws or just top pair hands that QQ are ahead of
