      Party, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      CO: $19.67 (78.7 bb)
      MP: $28.36 (113.4 bb)
      UTG: $25.95 (103.8 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $25 (100 bb)
      SB: $25 (100 bb)
      BB: $29.23 (116.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q:club: Q:spade:
      2 folds, CO calls $0.25, Hero raises to $1, SB raises to $3.50, 2 folds, Hero calls $2.50

      Flop: ($7.50) T:heart: J:diamond: T:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $3.75, Hero calls $3.75

      Turn: ($15) 2:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $8, SB raises to $17.75 and is all-in, Hero ?

      Villain is unknown. Probably he sees my rise on a fish, so I guess he 3bets me light, so I just call IP to have him in pot. How is my postflop with overpair on a paired board? Should I just take free card on turn, or make a bit smaller 6-7$ bet?

      Hey,

      Vs light 3bettors you should definitely widen your 4bet range and that most definitely includes QQ for value. Calling won't be -EV but these positions, you isolating the fish, just 100bb deep.. you really want to defend your isos, especially with a value hand like QQ/

      Postflop, I usually see QQ+ here from non-aggro regs. You can obviously include AKdd, AKhh and other combo draws and also given the pot odds you get (minraise) you probably have to call.. There will be some Jx as well, but most often I saw QQ+.

      What about my turn bet? Should I just check it and reevaluate river, or take bet/fold with smaller raise?

      Given texture (2FDs, plenty of gutters and OESDs) I'd just shove. You would want max FE with your draws too so makes sense to have the same with your value hand in this exact same spot where you are quite unsure of your opponent's range and are mostly playing your own. Maybe bet small with TT, JJ, Tx (nutted hands).
