      iPoker - $0.20 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: 110.15 BB
      UTG: 101.5 BB
      Hero (MP): 150.75 BB
      CO: 42.3 BB
      BTN: 106.65 BB
      SB: 592.8 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q:heart: Q:diamond:

      fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, fold, BB raises to 9 BB, Hero calls 6 BB

      Flop: (18.5 BB, 2 players) 5:spade: 4:spade: T:club:
      BB bets 13.85 BB, Hero calls 13.85 BB

      Turn: (46.2 BB, 2 players) 6:heart:
      BB bets 30 BB, Hero calls 30 BB

      River: (106.2 BB, 2 players) 6:diamond:
      BB bets 57.3 BB, Hero calls 57.3 BB

      500 hands vpip 15, 3bet 6, 4bet 5. cbet flop 4/4, turn 1/2

      Tough spot, his range is very strong, I think there are 75% weaker hands then mine and 25% stronger in his range or even less stronger.
      Is my call IP ok? I think it is bad 4bet because he folds AQ, AJ, TT, I am not sure if he folds AK, JJ. But he continues with range which is stronger than mine. And it would be bad to 4bet/fold with QQ?

      Postflop: I think I have to call flop with overpair, and he cbets 4/4, but fold turn or river? I beat only JJ, and I think he would play until push with JJ. So I could hope AK,AQ 3barrels?
      Fold river at least?

      Does he even 3bet AQ, AJ, TT in these positions to be worried he might fold them to a 4bet?

      If he 3bets and folds some hands, not even a lot, you can 4bet/call QQ if he gets it in with QQ+, AK. You have 40% against that and you make up for it with folding equity. Calling IP is also doable, no harm there, this is more like dynamics and range construction stuff you should think about. Do you want to often respond passively and call IP or do you want aggressive 345bet dynamics?

      As played, I think I'd make a weak turn fold.. his range is just too strong.. he doesn't have JJ playing like this.. it's KK+, AKss usually so you are pretty much screwed imo. You can't tell from those stats much here actually.. Don't know about NL20 on ipoker but on Stars NL50, probably even NL25 you can 4bet/call QQ profitably here imo. It's close but profitable.
