      MP3: $15 (60 bb)
      CO: $12.75 (51 bb)
      BTN: $19.30 (77.2 bb) NIT
      SB: $27.59 (110.4 bb) 26/13/1.8/1.5/1.4k vpip/pfr/3bet/AF/hands cbetOOP: 45
      BB: $25.29 (101.2 bb)
      Hero (UTG+2): $25 (100 bb)
      MP1: $45.61 (182.4 bb) calling station 75/3
      MP2: $40.50 (162 bb) TAG regular

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with K K
      Hero raises to $0.80, MP1 calls $0.80, MP2 calls $0.80, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.80, SB raises to $4.90, 2 folds, MP1 calls $4.10, 2 folds

      Flop: ($12.45) 5 2 J (2 players)
      SB checks, MP1 checks

      Turn: ($12.45) 4 (2 players)
      SB bets $22.69 and is all-in, MP1 folds

      It is the first time when I fold KK preflop. (AA I have folded a few times in the past :) )
      SB has a 3bet of 1.8 wich in this spot I am assuming it is slightly less, so I think he can do this only with AA,KK and maybe QQ, and I dont think that he can go broke with QQ.

      But the question is if it is okey for me to just call, hoping to get value post flop from the calling station, and keep QQ in the range od SB.

      Hi CleoClaudiu,

      It is indeed an interesting spot as SB should have a strong range.

      However, considering the number of people in the pot I can see him do this with some AK and QQ and I wouldn't be able to fold.

      Since MP also called and there's a ton of money in the pot I'd go with the hand.

      IF SB has QQ+ then we are 50/50 with him (6 combos QQ that we beat, 6 combos AA that we lose to and 1 combo of KK that we tie with).
