      - if you don´t 3-bet pf I like c/c flop and calling him down or b/c turn if you check flop.

      Missed a river bet?
      - he is reping stronger range and he won´t call you down with bluffs, so I like c/c river

      Is there any point 3betting pre here? Seems that against this sort of opponent he is going to fold worse hand and 4bet with AA,KK,AK.

      A lot of people raise any pocket pair UTG so isn't flatting better to get value from these hands on dry boards like this?

      If I am going to flat here to hopefully keep these weaker hands in his range do I then need to be playing hands like this a lot more aggresively to get more value? Flatting here doesn't really look that strong especially on this sort of board...

      Depends how tight is player, and if generally people 3-bet that spot with QQ or not. If he is opening any pp I think 3-betting is generally better, since then he has to tighten up his opening range and if get 4-bet then you can consider folding, but I think he would also call with TT/JJ that spot and he would not really just call for set value.

      do I then need to be playing hands like this a lot more aggresively to get more value?
      - not really sure, if you want to have some hands that can call 3-barrel I think c/c is perfectly fine that spot. At that case he can´t really go 3 streets for value with JJ/TT, so you can also call twice with worse hands. I would likely prefer leading to him to make sure I get maximum value if I don´t c/r flop and play for stacks
