      Preflop: You could consider 3betting preflop vs someone who is loose. Calling is also fine, though I think I would prefer flatting here with stuff like JJ+ or AKs which tend to play better in 3way pots.

      Flop: I don't really like raising on 3 straight boards. He can have a bunch of better hands like sets and QJ. If board was AK9 then I think raising is fine.

      River: Folding here is fine, you will have many QX hands in your range and I don't think he is bluffing too often. But if you have a read on him barreling river too much with draws then you can consider calling down.

      He's mostly repping AQ and QJs here, I don't think he barrels Turn with stuff like KQ/QTs/QQ
