      Hello clandestineAl,

      Preflop: Well, the first problem comes here actually already. With raising it 3x then it means practically that you are giving him ~17:1 odds which is correct Call for set-mining. For that reason it's not only QQ but as well any smaller PP which may Call you. I would do it 4x his raise being even OOP.

      As played
      Postflop: So for that reason I'd say I am not a big fan of calling against such an opponent here the shove who has W$SD of 80 for 300 hands. Most likely he has hardly us beat. Could even be a trap with AA. Could be definitely any kind of set. I'd Bet/Fold it.

      Best regards.
