      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BB with Q :heart: Q :spade:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.62, SB raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $4.50, 1 fold, SB calls $3

      Flop: ($9.62) J :club: 4 :heart: 3 :club: (2 players)
      SB bets $6.85, Hero raises to $13.80, SB folds

      Nothing less than a horrible raise by me on the flop, fishy thought process, I don't really know, "put him on a decision for all his chips" or wtf I was thinking :D

      Qa: ok preflop play? because of his 3bet being so small i thought that he is going to call a 4bet like the one I did with a wider range.

      Qb: shove or just call on the flop? If I shove I might get called by the draws that I think he usually has in his range.

      If I just call and draws hit on the turn how should I play? I find myself folding very often in this spot so this is why I am inclined towards shoving.

      Hi,

      Like your cold 4-bet pf.

      Qa: ok preflop play? because of his 3bet being so small i thought that he is going to call a 4bet like the one I did with a wider range.
      - I would likely shoved there QQ to protect myself against draws and overcards. Also not bad to take down 60bb pot

      If I just call and draws hit on the turn how should I play? I find myself folding very often in this spot so this is why I am inclined towards shoving.
      - never fold that spot, since players can always bluff (he would have b/c flop his draws) and you´re making very big mistake if folding better hand. If you don´t think you can call again on the club turn, then rather shove flop

      best regards,
