      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $150.84 (301.7 bb)
      SB: $27.20 (54.4 bb)
      BB: $67.89 (135.8 bb)
      UTG: $51.25 (102.5 bb)
      MP: $60.45 (120.9 bb)
      Hero (CO): $56.44 (112.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:spade: Q:diamond:
      UTG raises to $1.50, MP raises to $4.50, 5 folds

      Results: $3.75 pot
      MP mucked and won $3.75 ($2.25 net)

      Anon. table

      UTG 28/28 41hands
      MP 25/25 15% 3bet 42 hands.

      Is calling better than folding in this spot with limited information? I think 4bet is overplaying the hand.

      If we have KK+ in this spot vs. unknown players? 4bet or call?

      Hi Achilles,

      With KK and AA we can 4-bet and go with the hand.

      With QQ here I'm on the fence because I feel that an MP 3-bet vs UTG open is still somewhat strong (stronger than BB vs BTN or BTN vs CO).

      With that being said I would assume that MP would still have some bluffs so I don't actually mind 4-betting to something like $10. This would leave us behind roughly $46.44 so calling a shove all depends on what we expect villain to stick the money in with (I know we have no info but do you expect someone at these limits to stick it in with AKo in these positions)?
