      Hand before he called me 3bet from bu with JQo and played passive on Q high board.
      Is it ok to 3bet flop and get it in versus his PP?

      Preflop: This is way too small. Make it 7 or 8 BB.

      Flop: Never folding here. I don't see how he is going to show up with any 5X hands. Assuming he 4bets QQ+ preflop, he rarely flats 55/22 preflop, and the only 5X hand I would expect him to have here in this spot is A5s, I think he reps nothing. Maybe he even raises worse for value (TT/99/88).

      So the question here is whether we should 3bet, shove, or flat the Turn. I don't mind slowplaying QQ+. JJ is more vulnerable and we know we crush his flop raising range anyway so I dislike flatting.

      I think min3bet is the best way to look bluffy especially when the board is so dry. Never folding on Turn, though an Ace or King Turn would be pretty sick.

      Nice hand.
