      PartyGaming - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      MP: $25.35
      CO: $23.93
      Hero (BTN): $38.32
      SB: $25.00
      BB: $20.32
      UTG: $32.58

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero has Q:club: K:club:

      fold, MP raises to $0.85, CO calls $0.85, Hero raises to $3.00, fold, BB calls $2.75, fold, fold

      Flop: ($7.80, 2 players) J:club: 9:heart: 4:club:
      BB bets $3.70, Hero ???

      So i 3bet here because i'm in position from the fishes.The pf raiser is a regular who raises 24 % from MP and folds to 3bet 86%.Now on the flop i've seen earlier a monster hand played by this guy very passively, he had quads.So i know that he plays passively the nuts.Here i think i have a monster hand, calling i think it's out of the question.

      Quads is a different strength of 'the nuts' compared to a set here. I still think he can have worse, like Jx, QQ and I believe the best way to play your specific hand vs his range here is to raise, take advantage of any folding equity you might have and also get it in with great equity yourself. If you check, too many turns will decrease your equity or will give you the best hand while scaring your opponent out of the pot.
