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

      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
