      BB showed Q Q and won $6.11 ($2.92 net)

      Villain has 3bet stat of 9.1 for 110 hands. I know this is a small sample and he is representing a strong range considering I am UTG but my equity against his 3bet range and my position are what pushed me to call.

      By the river I put him on QQ-TT (very narrow range I know) and get the bright idea to try and bluff him off his hand even though I have not represented a stronger hand on previous streets.

      I checked back two streets for SD value but then tried to bluff the river which makes no sense.

      If you had put him on range TT-QQ on turn already, I would like your play. He won't fold river, coz you would have bet with A or K earlier.

      I think your line C/F flop/turn is fine, but I'd go c/f on river, too.

      Preflop raising is fine.
      I think we should fold against the 3bet though. What hands do you think he is 3betting here?

      Postflop is ok until the river.

      I really won't try to make him fold QQ-TT, just because we played quite passively on the previous streets and those hands are going to call us most of the time, so rather check back and take the showdown.
