      Always cbet after firing a 3bet. We represented too strong a hand range not to, and villain has played weak by checking.

      This either means villain will fold or villain has 3 queens and wants to win another $6. Dont disapoint him by checking behind like that. QQ is only about 8% of the villain's range here, much less accounting for the fact that villain will not always slowplay top set.
