      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      SB ($2.01)
      BB ($4.88)
      UTG ($2)
      UTG+1 ($1.43)
      UTG+2 ($4.78)
      MP1 ($0.52)
      MP2 ($2.29) (24/24/inf)
      Hero ($2.02)
      BTN ($1) (8/0/inf)

      Dealt to Hero Q:diamond: Q:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, MP2 raises to $0.06, Hero raises to $0.18, BTN calls $0.18, fold, fold, fold

      FLOP ($0.45) 4:diamond: 3:diamond: 3:club:

      Hero bets $0.45, BTN raises to $0.82 (AI), Hero calls $0.37

      TURN ($2.09) 4:diamond: 3:diamond: 3:club: 9:diamond:

      RIVER ($2.09) 4:diamond: 3:diamond: 3:club: 9:diamond: 7:heart:

      Hero shows Q:diamond: Q:spade:
      (Pre 57%, Flop 76.2%, Turn 90.9%)

      BTN shows K:club: A:heart:
      (Pre 43%, Flop 23.8%, Turn 9.1%)

      Hero wins $1.96

      Since BTN's shove was less than the pot, I thought calling was appropriate. I didn't put him on A3 and 33 or 77 seemed unlikely.

      I am, however, wondering whether the 3bet on MP2 might not have been foolish since he's 24/24.

      All comments appreciated.

      Nh you played hand the way as I´ve played.
      MP2 raising range from MP2 is wider than QQ so you should definitely 3-bet for value and play for stacks if he want to.
      And on the flop he is pot committed so b/c flop is fine, since he would shove that spot also with any pair. But since board isn´t that drawy you can also bet flop smt like 0.25$ that you might also want to do sometimes with AK or your weaker hands. Also that might easily induce shove from wider range

      I seriously need help calculating ranges. Any advice from anyone?

      What do you mean by calculating ranges? Just download the equilator or equilab and you can put his range into the program, lets say in this case 24. And then you start dropping a lot of hands which he ain't gonna shove on that kind of flop and you will get the range. Hopefully it helped somehow.
