      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q, Q.
      Hero raises to $1.00, 3 folds, BU calls $1.00, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($2.35) 4, 8, 5 (2 players)

      Turn: ($10.85) 3 (2 players)

      River: ($22.85) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $16.28, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $22.85.

      Villain 22/16 post flop agro 2.8

      What is the best way to play? Bet fold flop seems too weak.

      EDIT: probably bet/fold flop because raise CB is 15% over 700 hands sample

      This is one of these hands where you need specific reads on your opponents ranges. What does he check/raise? If he has a draw-heavy range, your best option is 3bet/broke. If he only has a value range, you should fold flop.

      Against unknown, I would probably call the raise, check/call turn and check/call or check/fold river, depending on timing tells, bet sizing and ...my mood :D .

      If eh likes to make moves I think you can´t b/f flop. Instead of b/c turn prefer c/rai turn to let him bet his draws. Likely not going to c/f on that river card, so I would prefer c/c instead of c/f
