      Pacific Poker - $0.30 NL - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BB: $26.60
      Hero (UTG): $30.45
      BTN: $30.33
      SB: $58.03

      I'm open raising about 20 percent of my hands, this guy's 3bet stat is 5%, but I guess it's bit narrower at the BTN. In addition he has recently 3bet me several times, so I think he expects me to play back at him and therefore I don't think he has a marginal hand there.

      What should I do? Folding would be probably too weak and I don't want to call only to face a A or K high board OP.

      SB posts SB $0.15, BB posts BB $0.30

      Pre Flop: ($0.45) Hero has Q:spade: Q:club:

      Hero raises to $1.05, BTN raises to $3.90, fold, fold, Hero raises to $30.45, BTN calls $26.43

      Flop: ($61.11, 2 players) 5:heart: 6:heart: 8:diamond:

      Turn: ($61.11, 2 players) A:club:

      River: ($61.11, 2 players) Q:diamond:

      Hero shows Q:spade: Q:club: (Three of a Kind, Queens) (PreFlop 18%, Flop 9%, Turn 5%)
      BTN shows K:heart: K:club: (One Pair, Kings) (PreFlop 82%, Flop 91%, Turn 95%)
      Hero wins $58.06

      If u think he's 3betting you light, then shoving QQ doesn't make any sense. 4bet small and let him bluff shove if u don't want to call him down oop.

      I don't know what is his regular 3bet size, but he almost 4x here. If it's larger than his standard sizing, then I wouldn't try to play back with mediocre hand. QQ is still stackoff.

      No I don't put him on a weak range here. He's a reg and he's 3betting me like third time in a short amount of time, people usually don't do that with a weak hand. However I doubt if I can fold QQ here...

      you can´t fold there QQ, but if you want to get all-in then I´d prefer 4-betting to 9$ and let him shove over his weaker hands like JJ/TT or also maybe he decides to call with AQ, KQ
