      on the flop i can't see him having anything. he's not calling me pre oop with 55,22,Q5,Q2,52 and it's not gonna turn top pair into a bluff.
      calling his 3bet instead of shoving looks pretty strong, and i also think he will think it's very unlikely that i bluff shove river. at least for now while we haven't got much history.
      good? bad? any thought? :P

      if you had higher flushdraw, like K or A high then you can consider shoving flop, since you´re often dominate his draws and against Qx you have enough equity.
      If you coldcall 3-bet, then it looks strong, although if turn is blank and he shoves, what are you going to do :) ?
      So although coldcall is fine if you put him on air I think shove or fold is usually better on the flop.
      checking back turn is ok, since he can easily slowplay, but if he checks river I think 15$ "valuebet" has the same effect against air or maybe to 88 than shove
