      Villain is 15/8/3 for 600hands.

      PokerStars - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (BB): $11.61
      UTG: $10.45
      UTG+1: $10.80
      MP: $9.59
      MP+1: $10.67
      LP: $4.26
      CO: $10.27
      BTN: $10.00
      SB: $9.12

      SB posts SB $0.05, Hero posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has Q:spade: Q:diamond:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.30, fold, MP+1 raises to $0.90, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.80, fold

      Flop: ($2.15, 2 players) 7:spade: 8:club: 5:heart:
      Hero checks, MP+1 bets $1.00, Hero raises to $3.00, MP+1 calls $2.00

      Turn: ($8.15, 2 players) J:diamond:
      Hero bets $3.30, MP+1 calls $3.30

      River: ($14.75, 2 players) 9:spade:
      Hero bets $4.41 and is all-in, MP+1 calls $3.47 and is all-in

      Besides knowing I misplayed the hand completely, I just don't know what I should have done. I feel like QQ is too strong to fold preflop in this spot, but perhaps against villains 3 for 3Betting it is an auto-fold?
      I think everything I did was wrong, but I don't really know how this hand should play out, besides just a preflop fold.

      I would just muck QQ preflop in these positions. I think MP+1's range is 3% or even lesser? QQ is not a favourite vs such a range. I would call the 3bet with QQ if I were UTG+1, solely because of pot odds.

      But when you are in BB, you only put in 1bb. and you are definitely not committed into calling.

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 40.21% 38.35% 1.86% QQ
      MP3 59.79% 57.93% 1.86% QQ+, AKs, AKo

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 47.37% 45.79% 1.58% QQ
      MP3 52.63% 51.05% 1.58% JJ+, AKs, AKo

      Even if you include JJ in MP+1's range, you do not even have >50% equity so you should just fold.

      As played I don't really mind a c/r but still it's really hard to get value from too many worse hands and i expect AK to bet/fold Flop.
