      Villain is 22/16/4.5 (83 hands). The board was scary, so I decided to play passively. Please evaluate:

      CO ($6.10)
      BTN ($4.13)
      SB ($5.65)
      BB ($3.35)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 10 players) Hero is MP1 Q:heart: Q:diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.45, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.60, 6 folds, UTG calls $1.15

      Flop: 2:spade: 8:spade: 7:spade: ($3.35, 2 players)

      Without stats/reads, I dont know if its best to 3b QQ vs utg raise on FR, because you will have to fold to a 4b.

      As played, I think I bet turn after villain checked to me - for value and protection - and I plan on calling if villain pushes.

      You could expect villain to 4b KK/AA preflop most of the time so you are generally ahead. Any more :spade: would kill your hand.

      22/16 is likely loose enough that you can 3-bet him pf.
      Postflop I´d b/c turn to 4$, since I think he should lead again with made hands and very likely c/rai smt like TT/JJ with flushdraws that QQ are ahead
      Once you checked turn you can make small valuebet on the river, although going to showdown is also fine
