      Hi there!

      Villain is VPIP/PFR/AF: 47.7 / 11.4 / 4.8 (exclusive one-table player)

      Before this hand I saw only 5 hands villain was playing at this table, all of them aggressive preflop and postflop, sometimes giving them up on turn river, but not flop. He was newcomer to table, but seemed pretty aggro/bad style player from very beginning.

      I assumed his range could be even more wider in this spot since he played every hand till this one (after this - he calmed down).

      Preflop: I 3bet him (maybe should bigger, to 0.25$), he 4bets I decided call and see the flop (in standard I would think I'm up against KK+ maybe AK,cause this was first 4bet from him at this table, but since he showed so much bad play previously I decided his range is more wider smth. like 88+, AQ+)

      Flop: wasnt scary at all (except he could have had TT I assume, ofc. KK+ as well), but since I saw so much weakness from him previous spots (also I've seen players just can't lay down their AK with nth. on flop for them), I re-raised him, he 3bets, now (when I'm reviewing) I think I should 4bet shove him since he has only $0.46 left behind.

      Turn: ocf.easy re-raise shove on him.

      1) What if I'm up against a regular in this spot? - coldcall preflop his 4bet., or fold? what is standard play here with QQ?

      2) did I play well with my reads in this spot?

      3) Is this very common on NL2?

      UTG ($2.41)
      UTG+1 ($0.35)
      CO ($4.97)
      Hero (BTN) ($3.34)
      SB ($1.06)
      BB ($2)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.03, 6 players) Hero is BTN Q Q
      UTG raises to $0.08, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 2 folds, UTG raises to $0.32, Hero calls $0.12

      Flop: T 7 7 ($0.67, 2 players)
      UTG bets $0.36, Hero raises to $1, UTG raises to $1.64, Hero calls $0.64

      Turn: 7 ($3.95, 2 players)
      UTG bets $0.02, Hero goes all-in $1.38, UTG goes all-in $0.43

      River: K ($5.78, 2 players, 2 all-in)

      Final Pot: $5.78
      Hero shows a full house, Sevens full of Queens
      Q Q
      UTG shows three of a kind, Sevens
      A J

      Hero wins $5.55 (net +$2.21)

      UTG lost $2.41

      Hello miljonszalie,

      Preflop: Yes, the 3bet should be bigger, ~$0,24. Otherwise I'd just 5bet him and try to get it in there, they are capable just going broke with a lot worse and in this example I am pretty sure he would do even with that hand since he is that bad player.

      As played
      Postflop: Raising is here fine, although sometimes I'd even prefer to just Call for the reason that with calling we also keep bluffs in the hand and he is such type of player who might 2nd barrel with air. Otherwise as he 3bets us on flop, I'd also Call there and likely ship it on turn, as you did.

      Best regards.
