I had no reads on villain as early in session. Frustrating hand & without reads would you find the fold button by river?

Preflop you could of course make life easy and play 4-bet/call but I actually think that you may be getting it in as a bigger dog in your average micro- or even smallstakes game this way. I find that the average opponent is not shoving worse than QQ+,AK against a 4-bet unless you have/create some history or have specific reads - also considering it's CO vs Blinds isntead of BU vs Blinds/BvsB spot where I would expect more of that kind of preflop action.

Therefore I like your line pre and I would also call flop + turn mostly. It becomes very interesting OTR as I feel that here the average micro/smallstakes player will be reluctant to bluffshove because of the dry board runout. He may fire with bluffs/worse OTF and OTT so I like calling here and folding to a rivershove that is around halfpot where he shouldn't expect you to fold too many hands anymore.
