      Hi, cozacu!

      Tricky spot but I don't think I'm folding there either. We lose to AQ and sets but if villain has an odd Qx or is ever bluffing of semibluffing it would be profitable for us.

      Calling could have some merits to rep a draw or weak Q and let him shove river but since we don't want to see a :diamond: as well I'm 3betting like you did.

      I think it's tricky because we don't beat much but still I can't make sense of ever folding there. Even though many players would ch/r 22 and 33 on the flop and QQ is very unlikely, we will lose to AQ rather often (some good aggressive players are ch/r AQ on that board as well but that's way beyond NL4 I think).

      So yeah, all in all I'm playing exactly like you did even though I won't be so happy since I don't think that kind of tighter player is bluffing often that turn.
