      I'm not sure what to do here. Villain is 14/6 but not many hands. I briefly considered shoving as a bluff but I didn't want to stack off given our stack sizes and my not massively strong hand. Still I'm not exactly sure what hand he'd to do this with and why.

      Party, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      UTG+2: $1.21 (30.3 bb)
      BTN: $2.98 (74.5 bb)
      Hero (MP3): $8.48 (212 bb)
      CO: $1.83 (45.8 bb)
      MP1: $7.81 (195.3 bb)
      BB: $12.50 (312.5 bb)
      SB: $8.57 (214.3 bb)
      MP2: $3.92 (98 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Q K
      UTG+2 calls $0.04, MP1 calls $0.04, MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.24, 3 folds, BB calls $0.20, UTG+2 calls $0.20, MP1 calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.98) Q 6 2 (4 players)
      BB checks, UTG+2 checks, MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.62, BB raises to $2.10, 3 folds

      $2.22 pot ($0.11 rake)
      Final Board: Q 6 2
      UTG+2 mucked and lost (-$0.24 net)
      Hero mucked Q K and lost (-$0.86 net)
      MP1 mucked and lost (-$0.24 net)
      BB mucked and won $2.11 ($1.25 net)

      Hello Knyght,

      Preflop is fine, you have a premium hand, you want to raise for value.

      On the turn when you are raised, BB is almost always very strong here. Firstly he is check-raising with 3 players still to act. It's almost never a bluff.

      Secondly both MP1 and yourself have 200bb in your stacks to start the hand.

      Villain has QQ,66,22 almost always. Maybe one in a while a slowplayed AA/KK.

      This should be an easy fold. Don't worry about the absolute strength of your hand.
