3 barrels final two tables

I'll be honest, found this hand very difficult to analyse, as difficult to define villains range too well.

I think QQ is good enough on this board for 3 streets for value shove. How wide would you guys shove for value here? QJ is probably about as low as I would go? I think AJ is good enough as well.

How would you approach this spot?

I very rarely triple barrel for value because I typically find it very effective to check the river and give villain an opportunity to bluff. Not sure how many opponents would call down 55bb effective over 3 streets with a marginal pair here.

Re: 3 barrels final two tables

Shoving the river with QJ seems pretty bad (mainly cause you're prob not betting the flop with QJs) and it's also just way too thin.

I might consider checking the turn some % of the time. I'd jam the river as played tho.
