      BTN showed Q Q and won $51.39 ($24.87 net)
      Hero showed K A and lost (-$26.52 net)



      Looks like the perfect hand to have in my bluffing range here.

      Villain tanked before calling even with his hand and I think that against a standard reg QQ should be a fold. we had no history.

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Don't see any reason to CB the flop, you will most of the time vs a strong range there. Just Check/Fold it.

      But rather ask yourself why do you 4bet in first place here, he is 3betting vs ZOOM UTG which is usually strong range. So why? :D Also why so huge 4bet?

      Best Regards.

      I expected him to have polarized range for 3betting here but I guess I can't expect that as a default ?

      Overdone it with the sizing- 6$ would be ok, right?

      And x/fold flop... expecting him to have AA,KK a lot of the time with some QQ mixed in?

      It's still NL25, why would you assume this by default? Don't try to level yourself. :P

      2,5x would be standard.

      And x/fold flop... expecting him to have AA,KK a lot of the time with some QQ mixed in?

      What else he is calling vs unknown UTG 4bet? Why would he ever have a loose range there, + you also have a huge 4bet?
