      i have been trying to sort out my issue of folding to too many 3bets.
      however spots like this occur semi-frequently in zoom.

      villain playing 23/18, 3bet 2/31 times, 0/13 from bb

      although i have QQ here, villain's 3betting range of a utg open probably consists of QQ+/AKs.

      we are deep so it is an easy call, but with 100bb stacks effective should i be calling?

      i realize i would be extremely exploitable if i fold QQ from utg to every sb/bb 3bet, but without many hands i dont think i will be exploited, and i think the 3bettors range is super narrow...

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with Q Q
      Hero raises to $0.75, 4 folds, BB raises to $2.50, Hero calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5.10) A 3 K (2 players)
      BB bets $3.06, Hero folds

      $5.10 pot ($0.23 rake)
      Final Board: A 3 K
      BB mucked and won $4.87 ($2.37 net)
      Hero mucked Q Q and lost (-$2.50 net)

      nah that's way too nitty. and if they had really nitty 3bet ranges of 1% you can actually pure set-mine and fold on 100% of flops when you miss your set.

      but i think the general approach is to call QQ, then call low flops and decide on future streets. Some of these guys do 3bet tight preflop with AK but then get really out of line and 3barrel it.

      Hello yougotfelted51,

      Vs a nitty range you can easily even Call for set mining when you are also 100bb deep. So pretty standard play here and also being 100bb.

      Best Regards.
