      Don't call pre-flop, raise to $3,2!! 2/3 bet on flop and push to a re-raise!

      With such a hand you can push regardless of whether they are shortstacked or not.

      QQ is a hand too strong to be calling preflop , if you have a strong hand raise it, if not fold it but please don't call.

      I like your flop play , no point in overbetting (mp3 is also there, he shouldn't be there if you had raised preflop :D )

      Your stack is too high, leave table, don´t pay blinds.

      Never éver call preflop raises with SSS, you are investing 20% of your stack if you call, that's too valuable compared to Deepstack poker because then you invest like 2% of your stack then.

      Shove accordingly next time
