      BTN: $9.85 - VPIP: 33, PFR: 33, 3B: 100, AF: 0.0, Hands: 3
      SB: $13.19 - VPIP: 30, PFR: 26, 3B: 11, AF: 0.0, Hands: 27
      BB: $4.90 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 22, 3B: 7, AF: 0.0, Hands: 90
      UTG: $10.27 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 15, 3B: 13, AF: 0.0, Hands: 34
      Hero (CO): $4.02 - VPIP: 14, PFR: 13, 3B: 7, AF: 3.9, Hands: 8464

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with Q :spade: Q :club:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN raises to $0.90, SB raises to $2.40, 1 fold, Hero ?

      Can i just fold queens here or? cold 4 bet looks pretty strong, ive got 40% against his range which i think will be AK+, KK+ here. there $1.2 dead money in the pot, obviously no FEQ, so lets assume SB has put me all in.

      $1.2 DM + $4 raise = $5.2 in the pot and i have $3.7, so i need 41%. I think there could be a small chance he could be 4 betting worse than the range above, maybe as it looks like the BU is 3 betting light, the fact that hes so loose.

      However the BU is still left and act and there is rake to consider, what do you think gerv?

      Hey,

      I am not folding QQ+,AK+ in a COvsBTNvsBlind situation. This SB guy looks a bit too active to my taste.

      If he was a supernit, you can fold but I wouldn't be proud of myself doing it on 6max. FR is different story but people nowadays are aware this is a perfect spot to put pressure on the BTN

      BTN would not call light when you shove btw

      It is a sample size of 1 , how else would you label it on? As a bad play because you happen to run into Aces ? :P

      We assessed his range to be consisting more of AA but that would also mean we can face it. Having a longterm view is much better than labelling this as a cooler (shortterm view). I would classify it as ''whatever +EV move anyway''
