We open utg QQ and empty the clip on 3 streets then get jammed on the river... Can we make the call?

My read, a "Yellow" label, is loose but not noted specifically a river raise. On this board maybe I should not fire three barrels, though it looks as bad for the villain?

Can we range our opponent or go with a feeling that it looks bluffly?

I guess this hand just depends on your read on the villain, and what you think at the time. I think his bluff would be more believable if he had started raising at some point before the river. I guess he wasn't thinking ahead, and that shove was just a desperation move after bricking off.

Good call
