      Play hand

      Villain is LAGgy, but few hands - seemed like a standard steal, and the raise on the flop seemed so routine...everyone seems to raise contibets on NL50 in position.

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T, Q.
      3 folds, BU raises to $1.50, SB folds, Hero raises to $4.50, BU calls $3.00.

      Flop: ($9.25) 8, T, 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $6.00, BU raises to $18.00, Hero raises to $45.50, BU calls $26.95.

      Turn: ($99.7) 2 (0 players)
      BU gets uncalled bet back.

      River: ($99.7) 5 (0 players)
      BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $72.75.

      that´s the problem if you 3-bet QT and hit top pair on drawy board- you likely have to go with your hand
      So for that reasons my line is most of the times just fold pf.
      I think you can also maybe try c/c flop and decide on the turn if you want to go with your hand, although bet/shove is also ok
