This is a turbo event so I will be playing looser a.k.a. calling the 3bet with Q9s.
My main question, on the flop which is the most profitable move?
Calling, raising to like 1800-2100 or shoving?
Considering no reads on villain so far.

there's a lot of chips in the middle , your monster draw has max equity OTF and why not to take a lot of chips with just Q high? I shove there if he calls I have a lot of chips to won. but if I call my hand might loose it's equity OTT and if I hit probably he will fold. raising to half of your stack is too bad I think.

Hi GamblingProp

Gambling early on is fine imo especially as you and villain have a lot of chips. Post flop is pretty standard. I expect villain to have hands like AJ+ almost all of the time which makes reraising all in the correct move.
There's 1800 yummy chips to be won right there and then and as we don't have a made hand it wouldn't make any sense to slow play it.

Cheers, Chris.
