      Hero shows a pair of queens (Qd Qc)
      BB shows (7h 7d)

      Hero wins with a pair of queens (Qd Qc)

      this took me a while to fish out but i was specifically looking for this because QQ and AK are the two hands i get really stuck with preflop. i do not know what to do when faced with a 3bet if i'm OOP or a 4 bet if im IP... i know calling someone's raise is weak but reraising with these hands might be overplaying it... im just not sure so your insight will be much appreciated :D

      Hello DrDunne,

      Myself I am not a huge fan of 4betting here actually. BTN with his PFR might easily even trap you with bigger PPs. Therefore I might even prefer just Calling and playing postflop.

      But as played nothing much to add, I don't think that we getting much value there anyways. But rather the value comes from Checking and taking a look into his hand and take a note. :)

      Best regards.
