      I just moved up to NL5 from NL2, and on this limit I am quite frequently faced with raises or even re-raises. I realize I can't always fold to a raise, but here I felt that a QQ could be easily dominated here by Kx, and thought a bluff unlikely from Villain (16/6, aggr 1.2). Did I just fold it too easily? Or better be safe than sorry?

      Raise bigger preflop. Make it at least 0.30$.

      Cbetting flop is fine and giving up to a raise seems fine to me aswell, because he doesn't seem too aggro. He could be semi-bluffing with draws, but that's not really standard for NL5, so I expect to see set/Kx here often.

      Good luck!
