      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is BB with Q :heart: Q :diamond:
      2 folds, CO calls $0.02, BTN raises to $0.08, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.06, CO raises to $0.14, BTN calls $0.06, Hero raises to $0.53, CO calls $0.39, 1 fold
      I think I was getting sick of 3betting premium hands and seeing everyone fold most of the times. It's really annoying, I don't need a premium hand for that! Really no weaker hand is going to call. At least not the button, who looks okish player after 17 hands.

      After the mind3bet, I honestly don't know what to do. His range in my eyes look like AA only :P , but folding would be too weak, calling and being OOP in a 3way pot seems bad. So I raised... Very strange hand, dunno what would be the best line

      Hello Imimba1,

      Those spots are very often going to be traps, therefore instead just Call it and reevaluate postflop. You can still play it for set value. Though we can assume that BTN is very often going to be towards weak range which we rather have beat.

      Best Regards.

      Yeah you are right, I shouldnt have 4bet then. :P

      Would you rather call or 3bet the initial raise from BU, and why? I don't know what the ,,Call it" refers to, the first raise or the 3bet.

      Against nitty BTN you can't really 3bet it for value. :) So Call it.
