      Can I call that? If he have JJ, TT, 44, 33, AT, A2, 65s, then I have 62,73% equity. I am only beat with 2 pairs, witch I doubt he have, and set. With AA or KK he will go all in before flop. Even AK I doubt he have.

      Why not 3bet pre-flop? You've given yourself a real difficult situation here as its so hard to put either of them on a hand. It could be 33, 44, TT, but then it could be JJ - some players at 4NL would play AT this way too.

      In future I'd say just 3bet with your premium hands and avoid this sort of problem.

      Why not 3bet pre-flop?

      Because UTG1 is nity player, so in his raise range are TT+ or AK and there is also one nity player in MP2. So I decide just to set mine.

      Hello mylove190207,

      Preflop: Well, obviously Calling is totally fine here. I mean if you are against a nit then his 4bet/Broke range is going to be something like KK+/AK and do we really want to go broke against him? For that reason obviously playing it this way should be totally fine.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much you can do, I wouldn't continue either here while I played it passively preflop. Good fold!

      Best Regards.

      In that case if you just flat-call pre are you just set-mining? Seems a bit of a waste with QQ?

      id rather squeez fold vs the nit and squeez for value vs the other players, otherwise, seems really quite a waste with QQ.

      Why should be just set-mining? We also can play for overpair and then reevaluate it postflop. If we are squeezing then most likely against a nit we have to consider of Squeeze/Folding. Since their 4bet range is going to be KK+ and maybe some AK type of hands at the best for us which is a flip.
