      Villain is playing 18/15 over ~1k hands and his 4b is 2%. The way he bets just makes me think that he is going for max value with AA/KK. Calling QQ against a 2% range isn't going to be profitable but against what range is it?


      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.20(BB) Replayer
      SB ($20.60)
      BB ($7.30)
      UTG ($38.90)
      UTG+1 ($21.58)
      CO ($28.35)
      Hero ($20)

      Dealt to Hero Q:heart: Q:club:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.70, fold, Hero raises to $2.20, fold, fold, [color=red]UTG+1 raises to $21.58 (AI),

      Hero ???

      Hello Rogbey,

      Usually you should be asking yourself in those spots when you are 3betting a MP. Especially when you are against a nit and who has 4bet of 2% -> usually KK+. Especially if he even has a high W$SD you wont really see him paying you with a lot worse hands vs the 3bet. Therefore rather Call and play postflop over 3betting and then folding our QQ while it's just way too strong to do it -> which again makes us to ask if we do beat much from his range?

      Therefore a Raise/Fold in this case but you should be in the future rather calling vs those nits against you wont be able to 3bet for value while you didn't point any other stats out either.

      Best Regards.
