      Hello riskcore,

      There is an option to Check it behind and ship the river. This way you gain some value from even hands like TT-QQ. Although we ain't getting it away from here while it's a 3bet pot. He just made a mistake by calling preflop.

      Also you don't have to bet it that big on flop. With such a huge bet you are representing only the strong made hand. Can't even balance your bluff-lines.

      Best regards.
