      You can't :p You'd need some reads on the way he plays. Is he tight or not, does he ever make information raises with middling overpairs, can he play draws aggressively or not. These aren't things you can generalize to every poker player out there, you need to make educated guesses depending on what you've seen from him so far.

      In case he's completely unknown, you need to resort to making assumptions based on what you see most players do at these stakes. They can certainly play a lower overpair like that, and some of them will play their draws aggressively. Which means in average your QQ is good in that spot and you should try to felt it, which you did. NH.

      Hope it helps.
