      Villain was 30/20 with 11% 3b over 86 hands. He was 3 betting my steals crazy often. He was also super agro.

      Hard to play postflop so deep in these kinds of boards w overpairs.

      1) Do we stack off here pre for ~180bb? Call a 5 bet, and bluff catch OTF once?
      2) Really ugly board, a c/r would be disgusting so I checked back to induce, and to see another blank before deciding to value bet.
      3) River is gross also, only beating JJ, most AK and AQ. Would be surprised to see a c/r here, but decided not to bet, do you agree?

      Hi,

      I don´t think he would 5-bet bluff you often enough that you should play there for stacks at the same time I´m not really sure why we 4-bet QQ if we don´t want to play there for stacks.

      So likely I would either go with my hand pre-flop or just flat to play ip his wide 3-bet range

      This board is not worse QQ range. He would not really 3-bet that often 99-66 and should not 3-bet/call pre-flop T8s. I would prefer c-betting there 3.5$ and playing for stacks.

      If you want to pot control then turn and river play is fine. River is too thin to valuebet

      best regards,
