Pre-flop: (\$0.75, 5 players) Hero is BTN Q Q
1 fold, CO calls \$0.50, Hero raises to \$2.50, 1 fold, BB raises to \$8, CO folds, Hero calls \$5.50

Flop: 2 4 T (\$16.75, 2 players)

In this hand should i fold on the flop or fold on the turn?
Preflop i should 4bet this squeeze. Question is: if i 4bet lets say 20\$ can i fold if he pushes?
In general, how to play QQ preflop being deep?

In my honest opinion with a 40/29 I would 4 bet. Even though its a small sample size thats is very loose. If he calls I would push on the flop with that weak board.

If he pushes you all in after you 4 bet I would call. With the way you played preflop, I would have 4 bet him on the flop. Its a near perfect flop for you and he made a standard C-Bet. I would have raised to \$44. If he has AK he has to fold. If he has JJ-JT-AT-KT whatever he has a tough decision to make. The unlikely chance he has AA or KK then you may be hooped, but your not a better chance to turn a profit with Queens than this example.

My guess is he had AK? My guess also is that if you 4 bet the flop he would have folded.

Yeah re-raise him pre-flop.

Raise him on the flop as played.
Fold river as played, there is no way he is betting with a hand that you beat after draw completes on K high board.

altough the sample is low he looks kind of aggro, that's why I'm 4bet/calling (can't be too -ev < 200bb if it's -ev at all which I doubt)

as played raise/broke flop
as played fold river, I agree with dragar that you don't beat anything he is betting there

I would just call pf, but I would just likely raise flop and get there money all-in
If he happens to have KK/AA or set, then fine, but I belive that you´re often ahead and better is get all-in on the flop, when just callinf down
As played: tirn call is fine, btu you should fold river
He shouldn´t bluff there enough times with worse hand to call down profitable

Either 4bet-shove preflop if you are feeling good about the 30 hand read on the guy being very loose, or raise-shove that flop.

If you wernt capable of raising a cbet on a flop like that you probably should have folded preflop
