      Only hand that goes there is QJo, and it shouldn't be on a thinkin villains range. There's also some slowplayed sets or turned 2p etc, so it's fine to go broke here. You still have chance to make a fullhouse, even if it was QJ.

      Hey Ramadas,

      Preflop 3bet for value is fine.

      On the flop I'd probably bet larger. This guy doesn't have a full stack and might be quite bad. I'd possibly just pot it, to set up a turn shove.

      On the turn I'd probably just overbet shove the money in vs a fish. Sure he can have QJ, but there are plenty of other hands he can call with. You also still have some equity vs QJ.

      As played I'm never folding to turn raise here. Hand is fine. I'd just bet bigger in general vs weak opponents.
