      Hey Straywolf,

      The best play with QQ is usually to flat vs an MP open. 3betting is sometimes ok but you need opponents with a low Ft3bet otherwise you are not getting called by worse often enough.

      Flop is close. It doesn't make a lot of sense for villain to be doing this with any hand. His sizing looks somewhat fishy - I don't mind a call seeing as he can show up with Tx, JJ or 88/99 here. He can also be going for value with a 7x.

      When villain bets big on turn you can take basically all pairs below a king out of his range. He is unlikely to continue betting a hand like JJ/Tx etc. Best option is to fold the turn, he very often has KTs, 7x, or slowplayed AA/KK
