      I know that if holding a AA, KK, no doubt, be CALL ALL IN, but the QQ it?
      Holding QQ, CALL opponent 4BET ALLIN, will not be too weak starting hands

      Hello wangwei520,

      Since it's NL2, I don't mind going all-in with QQ, nice hand! And as we decided to 3bet then we can't really fold the hand. Either Call it and reevaluate flop or just go broke preflop. :)

      Best regards.

      1. teacher, I can understand you: the lowest level of the game, ALL IN before the flop cards can be a little more? Such as QQ +, AK?
      2. I do not understand your meaning of this statement: reevaluate flop or just go broke preflop

      You are welcome, I am glad to help you out!

      Likely yes, you can go all-in with those hands on NL2, those people tend to go broke with just a lot worse and are way too loose.

      2. I do not understand your meaning of this statement: reevaluate flop or just go broke preflop

      By that I mean if you just Call preflop then you reevaluate the flop like if you QQ is good enough to go broke or not, or just fold on A high board or something similar. :)

      If I get this hand is AK? all in or fold?
      In my opinion, AK is not into the hand, hit only if the FLOP A or K, have value
      If VILLIAN holding a POCKET PAIR, how many of my win rate?

      AK ain't always an all-in in this situation, it a lot depends on the opponent. How loose is he? How often does he raise? And etc, but usually on NL2, it's possible to go broke with AKo. I advice you to overlook our Starting Hand Chart. It will help you to get understanding which cards you can go all-in preflop and which not.

      Yeah, true. Take a look into our software here: PokerStrategy Software.
      There is a EquiLab or Equilator, which will help you get understanding what % you can win the opponent. For example you put AK vs JJ you get this:
      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 43,852% 43,647% 0,410% 55,943% AKs, AKo
      Player 2: 56,148% 55,943% 0,410% 43,647% JJ

      Just play around with the tool and you will get your answer. :)
