      3bet coldcall in position deep screams pocket pair, but on a 5 pairing turn against an unknown i don't think you can do anything but go broke. He's basically only repping 22, the highly unlikely 55 or a very weirdly played QQ, and since you can't be sure what he does with his Qx hands when it looks like a call is committing for him, it's just a cooler. NH. Since people likely won't balance a 3bet coldcalling range that much it's good to take note of that for next time.

      I'm uncomfortable checking the turn to him because really i don't expect him to bet much being deep in position, it'll be a good opportunity for him to pot control his Qx hands if he has some and he'll pretty much only bet his floats, which should make up a really narrow range after coldcalling a 3bet unless he's really fancy. If you think he might bet his Qx hands then maybe check/shoving over a committing bet is fine because it looks funky and he might call it off with top pair. Check/Calling the turn and check/folding the river against non committing bet is likely okay too, the tighter you think he is the better it gets.

      Hope it helps.
