      I dont know him, but his stats look fishy.

      His donk is so uncomfortable when we are deep. From my point of view I should make decision on flop wheater I believe him and fold, or call down. There is no sense that he donks pot with set, and also with overpair.

      Your hand is way too strong to fold on Flop and Turn. River is a really tough decision, with 4X improving to a straight. His flop donking range could contain some A4s/A5s/45s/46s type of hands.

      It's tough, but I think QQ is barely strong enough to call. I would fold my weaker pocket pairs like TT/99/JJ if I have those in my 3betting range.
