      Situation in this hand was pretty much the same as in NL10 SH AK Going broke preflop

      I also played few hands and had very aggresive image at the table (PFR more than 50 I think). Since the CO is very aggresive himself, I decided for 4b/call push. Is it a mistake?

      His stats: 31/25/25,0/2,0/18 (VPIP/PFR/3b/AF/Hands)

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Q, Q.
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, CO raises to $1.40, 3 folds, Hero raises to $4.30, CO raises to $10.00, Hero calls $5.70.

      Flop: ($20.15) K, 2, 8 (2 players)

      Turn: ($20.15) 6 (2 players)

      River: ($20.15) A (2 players)

      Final Pot: $20.15.
      Results follow:

      CO shows two pairs, aces and kings(K A).
      Hero shows a pair of queens(Q Q).

      CO wins with two pairs, aces and kings(K A).

      I mean, I almost always loose such coinflips, like in linked hand above also, but I think my decision to go broke is still right

      Hello Alleen86,

      For the given facts as you said he is pretty aggressive and even seems that he has somewhat aggressive stats then 4betting and going broke is totally fine. I would do it even more often than with AK type of hand.

      Best regards.
