      Hi,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: That's a really passive guy given the sample. We are looking at AQ+ generally.

      What's his 3-bet? Can we expect the one combo of QQ in his range?

      I would probably fold the turn once he bets so big though.

      His 3bet is 2,7, so QQ could well be in his range. Is it still a call on the flop though?

      I would call the flop at least and look to fold the turn o further action. Most people at these limits bluff one street if they bluff or raise thin for value.

      However, folding the flop right away is not a huge mistake either.
