      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Qs Qd)
      BB shows two-pair, kings and fours (Ks Kd)

      BB wins with two-pair, kings and fours (Ks Kd)

      I want to know how to play it better. Should I just call his 3bet OOP? Or fold to his 5bet?

      Hello ragney,

      Is it like the very 1st time you stealing and how about him fighting back on your steals? If you have been stealing him a lot and he might have adjusted to that then I'd get it in there as well and when we 4bet there, I wont really make the fold. And definitely take a not with what he picked such a line. Also it's BvB, often times our QQ might be even good enough if he is rather such a guy who defends his blind.

      Best regards.
