      Hello XyRo,

      Nah, I don't think that we are overplaying the hand there. CO has a lot of stealing range and therefore the 3bet is totally fine. And when BU decides to shove I don't think that we can fold there. I'd say nice hand!

      Best regards.

      BU doesn't shove, he just min 4bets, which suggests a strong hand, AA-KK to me. Hero then 5bet/shoves and BU calls. There are only two options after the 4bet, what you did, or folding.

      Because of the fishy looking 4bet size, at this limit I would always expect something stronger than QQ.
