      Do you have any stats?

      I think against unknown I would just call.
      Against an aggressive player I would 4-bet.

      Well on the flop it also depends on the opponent.
      If he's aggressive and seems like an experienced player I would bet.
      Against unknown I would played check/fold every street. Maybe call a river bet if he also checks the turn.

      4bet him preflop; looks like a squeeze and QQ is not a bad hand, also you wanna play QQ headsup or just take the pot preflop
      flop: he checked, very strange, i would bet/fold here behind

      as played, i don't think i fold the turn since he checked the flop

      Hey HoofdVogel,

      do you think they alraedy started squeezing on Nl25?
      I doubt it tbh. But you're right playing in a sandwich is pretty bad :\

      I like the call pre and the check on the flop. A bet there only drives away worse hands. If he has AK and is going for a c/r, you at least have the chance to hit a miracle Q on the turn if you check behind.
      I would call the turn bet and fold to another bet on the river.

      I would bet/fold that flop.
      It is easier than then call down two streets plus he could always fold KK :)
      Players don´t usually go c/r when they 3-bet pf, but would bet pot to protect their hand
