Small sample size but CO seems pretty nitty so I might consider folding QTo here on the BTN. Also another thing to do is to make sure SB or BB isn't 3-bet (squeeze) happy. BB is 3betting 6.25% over a small sample so looks possibly polarized or very large linear 3-bet range.
Even though you're getting a decent price to call, I'd just fold QTo to a 3-bet against two relatively unknown opponents since if you flop a Q or T, you're gonna be dominated to hands like AT and AQ and lose more money. Plus since its not suited you lose suitability...so you're really just hoping to flop 2 pair or the nut straight (draw).
The flop fold illustrates this perfectly. If you're not willing to call with top pair in a situation like this then you should be folding pre.
Hope that helps.
Make sure you look at your opponent's ranges before making a decision.
A ~6.5% range is going to look something like this:
Linear: 77+, AJs+, AQo+
Polarized: JJ+, 44-22, AQs+, A5s-A2s, 98s, 87s, AKo
I wouldn't automatically assume villain has AA or KK, but if he is 3betting a linear range (PT4 should be able to show what has gone to show down before), then your hand is completely dominated.
Price was pretty good so couldn't resist...
Thing about the strength of your hand relative to your opponents' hands. Even with decent pot odds, how well does it play against their ranges? If it doesn't play well and is easily dominated just fold.
