      i wasn't happy 4bet/calling off with QQ here which maybe was a huge mistake.. should i just have 4bet/called?

      Preflop there are pros and cons for 4betting but I think it will be plus EV to go broke here.

      Calling the flop is good.

      When he checks the turn I think betting is fine. If villain has a hand like TT here he won't call on the river anyways, plus there are some draws with which he might decide to check/shove or so.

      Overall, I think you played this played this hand well, probably apart from preflop, but then I wouldn't say calling is bad.
