      Well you have the following choices:

      1. Muck your QQ.
      2. Call with you QQ and then analyse the postflop 3.
      3. 4 Bet with QQ.

      Lets evaluate all this choices.
      1. Mucking QQ is definitely bad here. U can have the best hand . BB can hold AK/JJ/1010/AQ

      2. Calling with QQ is a little bit dangerous because of MP1 who has a huge VPIP, so he might call and then u put yourself in bad position postflop against 2 players if any overcards appears on the flop.

      3. 4bet with QQ is definitely correct. What are the chances BB holds AA/KK?
      He could have AK/JJ/1010/AQ and he would 3bet with these hands too. And of course u re not drawing dead when he does have AA/KK.

      So I would go for choice number 3. The result is not important. Its about making a good decision.

      Hello nipbourne,

      Calling is out of question here. If we Call then we are rather making a mistake, we can't set-mine there. Which means only options are 4bet/Broke or just fold it. That would mainly depend how we see the guy, whilst his 4bet size even might scream for a bit strength there I'd be more inclined to just leave it alone. The guy doesn't have a massive 3bet either and difficult to say which is profitable line and which ain't without dynamics.

      But whatever you pick I wouldn't say it's going to be a huge mistake, the guy may still 3bet a bit looser and even with some blockers as AQ or whatsoever, although he wont end up there JJ/TT which rather just Call more likely. But would the guy 3bet them that huge? :)

      Best Regards.
