      Villain is quite call happy which makes barreling look unattractive:

      How would you play this hand ? ?(

      without diving too much into stats, QXX boards are bad to cbet on in 4b/3b pots cos people don't fold underpairs like TT and the do play many combos of AQ/KQ/QJs/QTs type of hands.

      It's fine to cbet on those if villain's range is wider and contains more hands like AXs or T9s but i think this guy's range could be on the tighter side, despite his low FT3B.
