      Villain's stats are 10/5.5/15.4 over 55 hands.

      $0.05/$0.1 No Limit Holdem
      9 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG ($10.30)
      Hero (UTG+1) ($10.00)
      MP1 ($1.85)
      MP2 ($9.65)
      MP3 ($12.80)
      CO ($6.45)
      BTN ($2.25)
      SB ($2.00)
      BB ($16.70)

      Pre-flop: ($0.15, 9 players) Hero is UTG+1 Q:club: Q:heart:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.80, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.50

      Flop: 5:diamond: 6:spade: 9:diamond: ($1.75, 2 players)
      Hero bets $1.10, MP3 calls $1.10

      Turn: 4:heart: ($3.95, 2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $1.70, $1.70 to Hero ($8.10)?

      His call on my strong flop bet made me nervous, especially after the preflop reraise. Do I let the ladies go?

      No! At least I'm not giving it up here, your hand's too strong!

      Firstly raise to 4BB + 1BB per limper preflop. After calling his min 3bet you want to hit a flop which gives you an overpair and you get one, so you need to act strong, you're only beaten by two hands (KK and AA - I assume he's not 3betting with suited connectors or sth like that). The board is 2-suited so you might want to bet even stronger on this flop. He just calls and it's not really a strong play by him, I'm certainly betting that turn around 3$ (don't want to give AdKd or any Ax hand a free card here) and probably calling his shove.

      hi
      he looks realy nity so his range is preaty tight when he 3 bets your utg2 raise
      i woould check call flop and check call turn and probably check/fold river if he shoves . most players will bet 2 streets with overpair like tt jj but will check the river behind most of the time .
      but when they 3 barrel usualy they have a better hand then qq
