      CO: $4 (100 bb)
      UTG+2: $4.04 (101 bb)
      MP2: $5.24 (131 bb)
      Hero (MP1): $4.92 (123 bb)
      BB: $4 (100 bb)
      BTN: $4 (100 bb)
      UTG+1: $4 (100 bb)
      MP3: $4.40 (110 bb)
      SB: $5.07 (126.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q Q
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.04, Hero raises to $0.20, MP2 raises to $0.72, 6 folds, Hero calls $0.52

      Flop: ($1.54) K K 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.10, MP2 raises to $2.38, Hero folds

      Results: $3.74 pot ($0.18 rake)
      Final Board: K K 5
      MP2 mucked and won $3.56 ($1.74 net)
      Hero mucked Q Q and lost (-$1.82 net)

      I think I should be ship/folding pre-flop but I had seen him 3bet often and had a 3bet stat of 4.7 which is actually lower than I thought it would be and I thought I could see a flop and re-evaluate. I don't think this is the best idea OOP but would you do it in position? I have 57% equity against his 3bet range I guess I should just ship it.

      As played should I just check fold the flop instead of betting so big?

      I was doing very well in this session and I guess I didnt want to risk my stack with QQ when I didnt know my exact equity. Should I just fold if I'm not sure if it would be profitable to play for stacks

      Hello 0744379,

      Preflop: Yeah, I don't like that much the Call, especially against an unknown even. Well, the 3bet stat of 4.7 for me is rather a fold. :( Especially if you had rather such stat there as well, unless you saw him 3betting really often there and any other dynamics, then I'd just ship it being OOP.

      As played
      Postflop: Don't like the donk either and even if you donk then you should also play for the stacks, no point to donk and then even fold. What are you trying to protect from?

      Best Regards.
