      CO: $2.79 (27.9 bb)
      BTN: $10.92 (109.2 bb)
      Hero (SB): $9.70 (97 bb)
      BB: $17.31 (173.1 bb)
      UTG: $11.65 (116.5 bb)
      MP: $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q Q
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $1, BB folds, BTN calls $0.70

      Flop: ($2.10) J 2 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.40, BTN raises to $2.80, Hero raises to $6.70, BTN folds

      $7.70 pot ($0.35 rake)
      Final Board: J 2 8
      BTN mucked and lost (-$3.80 net)
      Hero mucked Q Q and won $7.35 ($3.55 net)

      Can he be raising here with just overcards as a bluff? and was it wrong to 3bet him for protection against like AK? In hindsight it feels like a stupid raise because the only hand i think really has a chance of catching up is AK so any A or K will stop me in my tracks. Would it have been better to check/call then donk the turn?
