      I think my play was bad,I was ready to go all in preflop.
      tho sample is low,I thought it could be bluff on the turn,so I called,
      but folded on the river.
      turn should be fold?

      Hey,

      The flop is simply very bad for you. However, it's bad that you cannot get much value. I think cbetting small here is the better play with most of your range... You still get folds from hands that can bluff you or have some equity, you still get called by Tx that squeezed and called pre because of odds, JJ as well. Your range is strong enough when you bet there that betting QQ will remain +EV and will make it easier to play.

      With info that he is rather passive or that he bluffs of stack here, checking to bluffcatch is an option but I'd need the info before going with the more standard and safe approach.

      More around 6 on the flop. If you replace your hand with AK I'd bet around 6 on the flop, 9 on the turn and shove river. In a 4bet pot stack/pot is so low you can bet very small sizings and be commited plus ranges are not that wide.

      You can also go like 12 on flop and shove turn with AK, it depends what your ranges are in 4bet pots and whether you want to barrel often or just get in quicker.
