      I think this is WA/WB.

      You hit TP against PFA, raise his bet and get rid of the SB, but PFA calls, then checks the turn OOP.

      Check behind the turn for a showdown here. If he has a better Q, or QQ+, you are in trouble.

      When he C/R the turn, you are beaten too often to call this, I would fold there, and save half a stack.

      Preflop, I would look at my opponent and 3bet if he is aggressive, and maybe just fold if he is passive.

      I´d just call flop, call turn and evaluate on the river.
