      3bet preflop please with QQ.

      You won't play a multiway pot with a monster pair.

      As played i would raise at least the flop to get informations.

      What if someone shoves behind my 3bet?
      What if villain shoves after my 3bet? Go broke here? (look at his stats, hes passive and raises from UTG)

      If someone shoves behind you I'm going to fold my QQ on a FR table. Because a cold 4bet often is only made with KK/AA. Sometimes with AK against which we only have a flip.

      If UTG 4bet shoves i think we should fold too.
