      When we are raising from CO,BU and SB and are facing a 3bet I don't think it's wrong to try to get it in with QQ because they tend to be loser from the blinds. In this case you have a tight player so taking a flop is ok.

      I don't think you overplayed the hand and both the betsizeing on the flop/turn and the check on the river was good.

      Hello MoneyGirl2906,

      It's funny to see people playing this way their hands. :D But overall your play is totally standard and I wouldn't change much. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
