      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.04(BB) Replayer
      SB ($1.71)
      BB ($1.19)
      UTG ($3.99)
      UTG+1 ($1.04)
      Hero ($4)
      BTN ($2.01)

      Dealt to Hero Q:heart: Q:club:

      UTG raises to $0.16, fold, Hero calls $0.16, fold, fold, BB calls $0.12

      FLOP ($0.54) 2:diamond: A:spade: T:heart:

      BB checks, UTG bets $0.28, Hero folds, BB folds

      UTG wins $0.49

      UTG 19/10/6 over 69 hands

      No need to raise this preflop, he will fold worse hands. I have position so I can call.

      On flop some of them may have ace so I fold. Especialy player from UTG may have ace.

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      Is there any specific reason for you not raising that guy? I would often consider raising there but against some tight opponents I wouldn't mind such play.

      Best regards.

      If I 3bet him, he 4bets and I will have to push. When he 4-bets it means his range can be AA-QQ,AK so it is coinflip. Of couse he may include bluffs in his 4bet range then when I push I will take down pot preflop. But I don't thinbk he would bluff 4-bet very often.

      But when he doesn't 4bet you? And is also so passive as you then you can easily play profitable against him, either he fold or just Call. I am also Calling sometimes with QQ against such nitty opponents but doesn't mean I am always doing that. And also even if he decides to 4bet then doesn't mean we have to go broke always, when we have a good read on him that he mostly does that only with KK+ and something similar, then we can fold.
