I would have said so a year ago. Nowadays I'm not sure stacking off pre flop with QQ is +EV. Dependant on what level you play at, and obviously player dependant.
I haven't got a large enough database to look in to it deep enough, but you seem to come up against AQ, AJ, JJ 10 10 far less often than you used to. Most times it is either AK KK or AA. It is still a good hand though and 3 betting is definitely the default play.
I don't mind a flat though in position. I mean if you 3 bet a nit, you are making him fold all the hands you crush, and he is 4 betting you with the hands you beat. Once in a while I see a flop with it, it balances your range too.
As played, I 3 bet the flop prepared to stack off. On the turn looks like bad news. Probably a fold because you have to expect another bet on the river.
