      Board: 9:spade: 5:spade: J:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    52.36%  52.36%   0.00% { QsQc }
      MP3    47.64%  47.64%   0.00% { JJ, 99, 55, AJs, KJs, J9s, AJo, AsKs, AsTs, JsTs, Ts8s, 8s7s, 7s6s, As5s }

      This is the tightiest we can expect him to have I think, and we are a slight favorite against it. He might even raise more top pair type hands ( because of how drawy the board is) also he can raise bluff here because he is going to make you fold a lot of your hands - which is true since you are considering folding QQ's here.

      Concluding I would raise all-in and be happy with my hand.

      since it is BU vs SB, which means BU would sometimes bluffraise that spot and fold to shove or raise/call with worse hands, like AJ, I can´t really see how you can b/f QQ that spot
      I´d shove and expect to be ahead most of the times

      Also remember it's a 3bet pot. So I would be happy to shove. Maybe there wil be a set up, but most of the time, you will be ahead.
