      No hud but the villain was for sure a very aggresive guy.

      Party No-Limit Hold'em, $0.04 BB (5 handed) - Party Converter Tool from

      MP ($4.58)
      Hero (BB) ($4.60)
      SB ($2.26)
      UTG ($5.19)
      Button ($4.02)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, Q
      2 folds, Button bets $0.16, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.34) 7, 3, 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button bets $0.20, Hero raises $0.46, Button calls $0.26

      Turn: ($1.26) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.96, Button calls $0.96

      River: ($3.18) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.02 (All-In)

      Okay, I know that in most cases I should have 3bet but he seemed to me like the type of opponent which will double barrel in every flop and turn having position. Also, I was thinking of doing this check raise in lots of flops.
      So, Is this line ever good here? Am I getting any value shoving the river?

      Preflop: Easy 3bet/5bet with QQ. Not sure why you are slowplaying QQ here, you should be re-stealing with a wide range and also 3betting QQ here for value. Absolutely no need to flat here to strengthen your flop checkraising range especially at NL4. We want to exploit people's biggest leaks at these stakes which is to call way too many 3 bets.

      Flop: Ok c/r is certainly reasonable. I think you should make it at least 60cents though, we want to play for stacks.

      Rest of the hand is standard, we want to stack worse overpairs like 99 TT JJ and some 78 A7 K7 type of hands.
