      Villain 11/5/1.8 over 3.5k hands


      Pacific Poker - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      MP+1: $13.88
      CO: $13.01
      BTN: $4.00
      SB: $13.82
      Hero (BB): $10.00
      UTG: $11.78
      UTG+1: $10.52
      MP: $9.75

      SB posts SB $0.05, Hero posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has Q:diamond: Q:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.35, fold, fold, MP+1 raises to $1.00, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $3.00, fold, MP+1 raises to $10.30, Hero calls $7.00

      Was this a bad call? I have read in the strategy area that it is rarely wrong to go broke pre-flop with QQ (and AK should be played the same).

      What is your view?

      Hello Cooleyman,

      Actually facing such raise and 3bet, I don't really like the 4bet. We likely just getting called by better hands and at the best get a coinflip but could as well be far behind. While he really seems to be that nitty with the PFR I'd basically just fold it.

      Best regards.

      Thanks, Veriz.

      Would you react the same with say AK or KK?

      AK -> yes, almost the same as QQ but just QQ is ahead of AK. :D

      But with KK I am definitely going to continue but the question is how. If I expect somehow the UTG even might 4bet himself then I would just trap and Call.
