      Known players:

      0,01/0,02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q:diamond: , Q:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0,07, MP3 folds, CO raises to $0,22, 4 folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0,17
      This was me playing tilted I think. Normally I would shove. But if we take a look on villians stats it gives me even more reason to think a shove is good. When in generall do you think it is not good to shove QQ here. If villian has a very low RaisePreflop stat like 5 or something?

      Hey tryhardnoob,

      If villain is a fish you don't fold QQ even if he has stats like 60/1(...PFR only 1).

      If villain on the other hand is a nit, then you can consider folding QQ preflop. Nits have usually stats like 9/8 and 3-bet 2%. But you need enough hands and make some reads before you fold QQ against him. I wouldn't fold QQ unless he's a regular nit I play often against and I know his range is basically KK+ only.

      Best regards,
