      Do you call the flop raise? His value range should be very narrow. Also raising this flop IP vs. UTG, doesn`t make much sence imo. I thought he might have some hands like KTs/KJs/maybe JTs.

      After i called the flop, i don`t think he is bluffing the turn often, so i decided to give up?

      Hi,

      QQ should 3bet preflop and I don´t think he calls too often 97s. So if you´re loosing then only to 99/77. I would likely 3bet vlop and play for stacks or if I b/c flop then at least call turn (although c/rai is also fine)

      best regards,
