      Hero shows Q:diamond: A:spade: (Two Pair, Queens and Nines) (Pre 70%, Flop 87%, Turn 93%)
      BTN shows T:spade: Q:spade: (Two Pair, Queens and Nines) (Pre 30%, Flop 13%, Turn 7%)
      Hero wins 240.86 BB

      MP 146 hands 27/17, fold to 3b 80
      BU 400 hands, 23/20 3b 11, sqeeze 12. cbet flop 83%, turn 3/3, river 1/1.

      Is it ok to call MP and have dominate hand? He folds often to 3bet so I think it is better call. The problem is all players after are 3betting around 10, but I would play only against BU OOP.

      Is it ok call sqeeze? His range is wide, and he barrels so much.

      Postflop: Is there a need to to raise flop or turn to protect or let him barrel? I guess there is no need to donk river?

      Preflop against MP you can consider 3betting actually depending on how much would he open from MP (small sample, I know). When people minraise as a default they do it with a wider than average range so that very likely makes AQo a 3bet for value but calling is also OK ofc.

      As played there, calling the wide 3bettor's squeeze is OK even OOP and when the flop comes, check/calling down is definitely the best option. To raise flop for value you need to induce usually because he won't have enough hands that want to get money in for value. Furthermoe, you don't miss value when he has a good Qx because most often he triples it since you look like TT-JJ.
