      By default I call 3bet with QQ all the time. Look at the flop, if no A or K then I usually try c/r, but on this flop, easy fold.

      Hi Tuuletallaja,

      nice hand! The preflop call is good as well as the fold on the flop. A and K on the flop.....you can't stand his bet there, especially because he is so tight.

      Best regards,
      TribunCaesar

      what about when the flop comes A,K,Q and he makes pot size bet, should i re-raise/call?
      and if i re-raise(he calls) or call, then what should i do on the flop if he bets again or checks?

      thanks

      You should be able to go allin on the flop most of the time.

      You have like 81% equity if he holds AK, so you will never QQ on AKQ board.

      If the flop is AKQ I would prefer to just call if no flush draw is possible in order to not take the initiative. I would like him to bet on the turn. Of course you go broke with a set of queens.
