      BTN: 100 BB
      SB: 195.96 BB
      BB: 101.36 BB
      Hero (UTG): 319.4 BB
      MP: 145.2 BB
      CO: 160.16 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has Q:diamond: Q:heart:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, BTN calls 3 BB, fold, fold

      Flop: (7.4 BB, 2 players) J:heart: 9:diamond: 8:diamond:
      Hero bets 5.28 BB, BTN raises to 17.16 BB, fold

      BTN wins 17.08 BB

      13 hands only.

      Very tough spot so I fold, and would play the same with KK, AA. Is it ok?
      Maybe I have chances against JT, or so, but still not great. So many 2 pairs possibilities, sets, straight, so my QQ is crashed. Does it make sense to call flop, and hope for straight? I think it is bad, because we hit rarely, and when we hit, we might lose against KQ, or opponent folds.

      Hey mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks good

      Postflop: With no info I agree with the fold. If we decide to play this hand we will most likely be breakeven at best against unknown (by raising/going with the hand).
