      Let's point out some important things here.

      1) MP's range is really wide here when he is 54/7 so he can have stuff like TT,22,QT, but also all sorts of random QX like AQ KQ QJ, KJ with the OESD,
      2) This is a 3bet pot
      3) The Turn minraise is almost always strong

      If this was a single-raised pot I would almost always advocate a snap fold. But this is a 3bet pot with a smaller stack:pot ratio.

      From my personal experience, I always jam KK+ here and get raped by 2pairs or sets. I think a fold isn't bad and might be the best play. Would have to check out my database for this sort of thing.

      I think that if he shoves, you may find a call cos you beat KQ and AQ. But minraise is like the nuts always.
