      Is it ok given the stats and the positions to stack off with overpair in this case ?

      MP: $80.64 (161.3 bb)
      Hero (CO): $59.07 (118.1 bb)
      BTN: $65.38 (130.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q Q
      MP folds, Hero raises to $1.50, BTN calls $1.50, 2 folds

      Flop: ($3.75) 5 2 J (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.81, BTN raises to $7.09, Hero raises to $17.87, BTN raises to $57.36, Hero raises to $57.57, BTN calls $0.21

      Turn: ($118.89) 6 (2 players)
      River: ($118.89) 3 (2 players)

      Results:
      $118.89 pot ($4 rake)
      Final Board: 5 2 J 6 3
      Hero showed Q Q and lost (-$59.07 net)

      Hey A,

      What happens even against aggro raisers vs cbets is that they play very well when you 3bet. It does so because they raise quite polarised to begin with so 3betting will only leave them with the good stuff in their range.

      I think calling the raise and playing later streets is the way to go.

      I thought about that but how do we continue if we call oop because he is aggresive also on later streets so I am expecting him to barrell any diamond , A,K . And on blanks do we call all the way ?

      I don't think calling oop is an option. For me it is probably tough fold without prehistory.
      3-bet is ok too because we can have semi-bluffs in the range.

      We just think how does a diamond, A or K change our equity against what we assume is his range. Keep in mind that if he doesn't have A, K or diamond, the diamond is a scare card for him too. It's pretty standard to see a bet/call with flushdraws here imo.
