      Villain: 649 hands: VP20%, PFR 6%, CBet 100%, 3bet 3%: 8% from early, 4% from med, 6% from CO, 3% from button

      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($6.05)

      MP1 ($10)
      Hero ($9.12)
      CO ($10.50)
      BTN ($13.17)

      Dealt to Hero Q:club: Q:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, CO raises to $0.90, fold, fold, Hero raises to $2.70, CO raises to $5.40, fold

      CO wins $5.55

      Ok, I get 3 bet and I have QQ. Calling seems like a possible waste. What do you do with a CBET? You're going to have to call unless there's an A or K on the board...then what about a bet on the turn?

      I decided to reraise/fold. I got reraised so I folded...I think I'm up against AA, KK or AK only one of which I have a little equity over.

      Not sure what the best play is here?

      Hello Edukator99,

      Way too overplayed with QQ against that kind of 4bet. At the best you anyways get a coinflip here and that's likely it. And to avoid isolating yourself against better hands rather Call and play postflop against him while QQ is still too strong to give it up directly and too strong to fold it. Although at some spots I might even fold my QQ.

      Best regards.

      Cool. Good to know. I've been calling in situations like that and have just lost money to cbets. Unless I hit a set it seems tough to win when you get 3bet and you have QQ. I guees a set or overcards is the best scenario.

      Let's say you end up with a flop like J 67 rainbow...raise a cbet at that point or call down and pray the A, K don't hit the board at any point?

      Guess I'd rather Call. The problem is that you might sometimes even scare away Jx with raising and can easily isolate yourself against better hands.
