      Hi, utg was 26/21 reg, opens 17% utg, 60% foldto3bet. MP is 25/21 reg, 3bets 6% in MP. I think I can call vs these ranges preflop. Right?

      Flop clear call I think. Any point in raising here? Villain cbets 77% in 3bet pot, 2nd barrels 44% (overall).
      Turn I don't think I can bet. What worse hands will he call me with? K is obviously a terrible card for me.
      River. Is he ever bluffing now, after my check behind on turn? Also, halfpot really looks like a valuebet vs my weak range here.

      Overall, I feel like I play my hand really weak and face-up in this hand. Can I take a better line?

      difficult spot pre-flop, but I think I would also not fold there QQ.
      Flatting is fine, although at some cases I would also 4-bet there and then depending on the player would either fold or call.

      I would either take postflop next line:
      raise flop and play for stacks or call once to then fold to turn barrel.

      Seems like you should be way ahead against 6%, so my line would be raise to 16$ and call shove

      board: ThTd5d
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      QdQs 66.90% 39,264 945
      6% 33.10% 19,191 945

      Since quite bad turn card came I would take my c/f line on the turn and river, doubt worse hands would call if you bet yourself and since river completed JJ and AQ+ he may always went pot control/trap with AA, KK, Kx I think folding river seems best option.

      Best regards,
