      BB wins $23.05

      villain is tight looking reg: 22/17/2 wts 32, 3b 4%. Should we always be ready to stack off pre with QQ vs BB resteal?

      If we choose to call, to keep in worse, whats our plan on Axx flop? Call once (as played) and fold to big (comitting) river barrel and tell ourselves we saved something vs going broke pre or fold immediately on flop unless we know villain never 2nd barrels as a bluff?

      I play these spots based on more specific stats like his general 3 betting tendencies from blinds + late position, his reaction vs 4 bets etc.
      Against an aggro moving guy I like 4bet calling, because we are usually gambling imo on a A or K high board.

      I would usually flat ip, since although it is fine 4-bet pf QQ and stack off unless you have reason to think player is 5-bet shoving light here. If you 4-bet it mostly goes 90% fold and then 10% shove if he is aggressive 3-bettor. best just to call ip and let him make mistakes postflop.
      TT-KK on Axx boards I would also like calling once and then folding to turn barrel. Very often he is giving up on the turn and you can either check it down or if your really want then b/f turn
