      Would it be better here to:
      - 3bet preflop (or just fold to unknown)?
      - check/raise (or donk bet) on flop?
      - bet out on turn?

      Folding pre-flop is a bit weak against unknown. I wouldn't re-raise.. KQ off may cost you some when he comes over.

      C/R on the flop is viable, but I believe C/C is better. If you missed the turn you'd be coming out betting, trying to take him out of the picture after his c-bet.

      You could come out shooting on the turn as C/R there usually means a monster and villains without monsters will not call you alot..

      I'd probably fold the flop.. two overs and inside draw.. and I can't be sure my overs are good.

      Lucky that he had set/2p, too :)

      3-bet pf. it makes your hand easier to play postflop.
      Flop: c/c is fine, you have enough outs and villain could check back turn.
      Turn/r is strong, but 55/33 would not get away here overpair/top pair never, so it is fine.
