      Preflop I'd fold against the 3bet. We are OOP and our hand plays quite poor because there is most likely to be an overcard on the flop and we will have a hard time playing postflop.

      On the flop checking with the intention to check/fold is good.

      Betting the turn is fine.

      On the river I actually prefer betting here. So far he didn't show that he has a strong hand, so I really don't want to leave him a chance to see a SD for free.
      I'd personally bet around $3 here.

      whats your plan if he jams over the top on the river? is it a fold? he can have slowplayed AA,QQ and could have been playing wa/wb with KK and spiked river?

      If he shoves the river I'd have a really hard time here and probably call just expecting him to end up having AK form times to times or hand like AQ or so.

      Overall I'm not really a big fan of folding big hands in 3bet pots but I do feel like this might be a suitable situation.

      When playing in a session, definitely I wouldn't find a fold here, but if I analyse my session and my opponent folding might be a good option.
      What I mean is KK makes sense here, also quite a lot of people do play QQ/AA like this too.
      AK most often cbets the flop, although he might decide that he doesn't really like the Q on the flop and check back for pot control and overall if you give him QQ+, AK we have 50% and even if we only put him just the half of the combos (since he might sometimes just bet the flop with AK) we do get the right odds to call.
      Also from times to times he might end up showing AQ or even KQ or so, so overall I really don't think that I can find a fold here.

      I really think that my post is a little bit messed up, so if anything left misunderstood feel free to ask again.
