      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is SB with T, Q.
      CO folds, BU raises to $0.75, Hero raises to $2.75, BB folds, BU calls $2.00.

      Turn: ($12.25) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.00, BU raises to $54.83(All-In), Hero calls $13.70.

      River: ($87.78) 9 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $87.78.

      Villain-unknown.Since we are only 4handed I think BU's range should be quite loose.Is 3betting w QTs ok?Is the flop ok for cbetting?What is the best play on the turn?After his raise I need 25% equity
      Board: 4d9h7s8s
      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 18.92% 18.52% 0.40% { QhTh }
      MP3 81.08% 80.68% 0.40% { 99+, 77, 44, AsKs }

      Vs this range things look bad so can it be looser or is there a better play on the turn?

      Do we know anything about BB? Is he squeeze happy or not?

      Loose or not, QTs isn't a 3betting hand really.
      Sure BU range is loose, but you're just 3bet bluffing there then since he isn't calling you with worse so you're not 3betting this for value, and QTs has rly nice playability postflop, so I would just call.

      As played ...
      Turn is a card which you would be check folding quite often, so with an OESD I would c/shove there.

      If you choose to barrel it's b/f once again.

      If you just barrel and get called, chances are you won't have the balls to shove the river since you have no idea about the villain and pot is big/FE low.

      c/shove turn looks scarier / gives more FE and if called you most certainly aren't drawing dead.

      On that turn card I´d prefer c/rai since that would put him the most pressure if he has weak one pair hand and also I get more value of his floats
      If you bet you have to call shove with your draw
