      No reads on villain. It seems on Rush you often find yourself sitting deep with other deep players which seems to happen less on normal tables. Playing such situations with strong but non-nut hands can be tricky.

      In this hand, I feel we should 3b pre otherwise all villain"s drawing hands see the flop too cheap. But once he 4b our position is not that pleasant. I dont want to 5b/fold QQ, so that leaves 5b/call or just calling - which I went for.

      Flop is almost best we can hope for our hand other than hitting a set. But when villain bets big on the turn I really dont know...

      If we call on turn we have to call it down, I think. So should we fold turn?

      Any different ways to play the hand earlier on?

      I think he isn´t really shoving river for value JJ/TT and he also might not 4-bet these hands so basically you´re against KK/AA when he bets turn or bluff
      Against aggressive player calldown can be reasonable but most of the times I´d just fold to turn bet. People are not bluffing enough in 4-bet pots that you should call down there with QQ
