      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.
