      fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.85, fold, Hero raises to $2.50, BTN raises to $7.60,

      HERO ??

      Villain was one tabling playing very nitty for his first 40 hands 19/5. I 3bet pf for value and he quickly 4 bets me - if I don't think this guy 4betting me with JJ/TT is this a fold, and seriously I don't ever see him ever 4betting a wider range than QQ+ / AK, maybe even without AK.

      And also I don't think 3bet/fold is a too bad of a line if I only expect to get 4bet when I am crushed. I get value when he call me and avoid for a cheap price a cooler when he 4bets.

      Hi,

      I think its a definite 3bet/broke situation. Not only because of it is BU vs BB, but because he is basically an unknown opponent (sometimes I play 60 hands lets say 8/8 and the next 60 hands with stats like 55/48, so u simply cannot 3bet/fold a hand like QQ with this very limited information). If he is still at 19/5 after 1k hands, with a 4bet range smaller than ~1,5%, 3bet/fold is totally fine.

      Best of luck

      I agree with previous poster. God know how many times my stats have been so far from the truth as they could in merly 40 hands.

      I'd stack off aswell.

      If he insta 4-bets he likely has there AK, since players would think a little with KK/AA to either seem weaker or maybe even slowplay pf.
      I would also not fold that spot QQ
