      Hi,

      Would prefer 3-bet pf. c/r flop is fine line, but if you want also to keep in your wider c/c range with Qx or draws then I think c/c should also be fine.

      I would not c/r turn and then fold to shove. Sure he can have there better hand, but he can also shove all his two pair hands that you're ahead of.

      Bets regards,
