      definitely a very strong play by villain here. Im always folding a hand like AK. Im not sure if you can fold Q8 though. Only 2 pair you beat is 68s, but you are losing to AQ/A8s/88. Then again with your Q and 8, you block AQ/88 a lot. He should be 3betting AQ some of the time (probably not that often at NL4), and should rarely have AA/QQ as well.

      overall i think it's a really tough spot. don't mind a fold actually - seems nitty but i don't think these guys have worse hands for value really often. My main concern is that we having 2 pair blocks off many of his own 2p/set combos.

      Hello xero100,

      I like your fold here, you are most of the times going to face a stronger 2pair type of holding or even stronger. So unfortunately we can't really do much in those spots. Well played!

      Best Regards.
