      Hero wins with three-of-a-kind, queens (Qh Qs)

      I got lucky here, but is it right to go AI preflop with QQ?

      Hello SnoWonder,

      Damn close spot. While his PFR ain't that huge, might even mean that he ain't 3betting a lot. And most very strong hands like AK+,KK+. Against that kind of range you most likely at the best get a flip. Therefore I might even sometimes fold the hand directly or either way against his PFR Call and reevaluate it on flop and not isolate myself against better hands.

      Best regards.
