      UTG wins $8.19

      Villain was 13/11.

      According to http://www.pokerstrategy.com/strategy/bss/1572/1/ I should fold the queens when playing 2 opponents who raise and reraise preflop with around 13/11.

      BUT in this situation I am against one opponent, and I would allin if he 4bettet me. He didn't, but he allined me and I kinda feel like I should fold in these situation even though QQ is a strong hand.

      It just seems that 13/11 kinda opponents often have KK+ when they allin preflop.

      Thoughts? :)

      13/11 in how many hands?

      A standard play in my opinion. You need to have solid evidence (a.k.a. a really big sample of hands from him) that his all-in range is tight enough to make your call -EV.

      If I´m not wrong you´re being offered 39% of pot odds. Against his top range (AK/QQ+) your AK has 39% of equity. An easy call.

      It's never fun to 3 bet a utg open, i like to do it with trash blockers.

      If I recall 60-100 hands, so yea a small sample. :) Ok thanks for your advice. I will continue to play AK, QQ+ allin preflop if possible then. ^_^ I will collect lots of data and see how it goes. :)

      Hello ChewbroCColi,

      If he is a nit then doesn't make sense to 3bet in first place but rather instead just Call and play for your set or overpair. :) And reevaluate postflop of course his actions.

      Best Regards.
