      Was the fold after the re-raise the right thing to do?

      definitely no. QQ is good enough to go broke with pre-flop unless your opponent is very very tight. Also, on NL2 people play very loosely, so you will be ahead most of the time.

      Hello adrenalina91,

      Actually this kind of line is pretty strong. Sometimes I would even say that when they are just 3betting against us this way it could easily be KK/AA, therefore in this situation I guess I would as well make the crying fold if we are against some rather tighter player. And would consider going broke when I have seen him doing such raises more often.

      But I'd likely raise bigger like $0,24.

      Best regards.
