      Final Pot: $7.85.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of queens(Qc Qh).
      CO shows a pair of kings(Kd Kh).

      CO wins with a pair of kings(Kd Kh).

      Villain stats in 27 hands :
      33(vpip)/4(pfr)/0(f3bet)/25(steal)
      -/-/60(wtsd)/0.6(af)

      There are 2 kind of people who raise bigger than normal. The maniacs who raise random cards and the elephants who raise the monsters. What would you do in this situation? I judged it as a steal and was happy to go allin. My only thought was if I should call and shove asap or raise allin.

      Hey Badea,

      Villains who make such moves are obviously fish and with QQ against a fish your only goal is to bet/raise for value. Nice shove preflop, well played.

      You can make a read he made this move with KK, but I am fairly sure he will do the same with TT/AQ/AJ... ...with a range you crush with your QQ.

      Best regards,
