      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BTN with Q :club: Q :heart:
      2 folds, MP calls $0.05, CO raises to $0.20, Hero raises to $0.65, 3 folds, CO raises to $3.93 all in, Hero calls $3.28

      Flop: ($7.98) 7 :spade: J :spade: 8 :club: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      Turn: ($7.98) 7 :diamond: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      River: ($7.98) 6 :spade: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      limper is fish 66/16 ~ 200 hands

      raiser is pretty much unknown 12/6 over a samll sample size ~ 30 hands

      I don't give this isolation raise much credit at all so I 3bet, to my surprise I get an AI 4bet and 3bet folding QQ is kinda a nitty so I go broke.
      I just don't see how can I get away from my hand if I just cold call (assuming a similair board sturcture).

      Hello Steelbrewer,

      Don't worry about those situations. On those limits it's perfectly fine to go broke with QQ. The opponent ain't even fully stacked, why should we have a problem? Nice hand!

      Best regards.
