      Didn't really feel comfortable 4-betting considering MP is pretty tight and also I don't have any 3-bet info on him, UTg raiser also hasn't raised at all in EP but I can't really fold QQ pre-flop so I felt I had to atleast call.

      I really hated the flop.

      Hi Sketchzr,

      Preflop: MP vs UTG are usually strong 3-bets so I would actually give respect in this case and fold QQ/AK often.

      What's your plan if UTG raises and MP folds? What ranges do you expect villains to have (MP for 3-betting)?

      Our call just puts more money in the pot and we know UTG is already aggro so we should expect him to potentially play back a fair amount.

      He is a "preflop aggro", I was sort of hoping for a raise and MP to fold because I think I could get it in vs. this guy with QQ pre-flop usually.

      I don't really have any info on MP so I'd assume a pretty tight 3-bet range AKs/AKo+ (maybe AQs) and QQ+ from that position.

      Exactly, so since MP is on a stronger range we should consider the muck preflop even though it seems "tight".

      In a vacuum getting in with UTG would be fine but we have to really look at MP here first and foremost.
