      if opp is tagish his value range on this flop is QQ(1 combo),AQ(4combos left),KQ (8 combos),22 ( 3combos),in total against 16 combos you loose and against 6 combos of KK you win.So out of total 22 combos you win 27% and loose 72%. Add some bluffs but still his range more beats you,than not. Seems you should fold nice overpair to unknown.And other consideration- on NL 10 FR opps are so passive that such action often is true than bluff.On the other hand some players a lotlotlot better then me say-never fold overpair and tp in 3bet pot.Very often they are right.By yhe way,your 3bet size is wrong imho,should be 1.2$.
      Good luck

      3bet size is fine in position against a 80bb stack, getting the money in is easy enough postflop that we don't mind encouraging action by making it cheaper.

      Postflop it's hard to weight an unknown's range between pocket pairs and Qx there. Okayish players will show up with just about any pocket pair when they raise/call preflop out of position, AQ too but we have 2 A ourselves, KQ more rarely. The worse the player the more Qx hands you can add.

      That being said most players are likely to try and slowplay flopped trips on such a dry board, so i think mostly you'll see enough people check/jam pocket pairs figuring you can't have anything on QQ2r to make it a call. Not really thrilled about it, but calling is fine.

      Hope it helps.
