      Not sure what range to put villains on here. Min raise can be a semi-strong hand or a monster. The other one cold calling is strange, could be a PP.

      What range would you take for the villains here? I think they could be a bit fishy given the stacksizes.

      Do we go broke on the flop?

      Btw thanks for the excellent judging of my previous hands.

      since both of them did not ship preflop, I would think that QQ is the nut overpair here. Occasionally we see KK here but I think AA is almost never in their ranges.

      If they have a set, so be it. The board is kind of low, and there are so many lower overpairs or maybe draws which would stack off here. I will happily get the money in and be happy about it.

      Since they are both fishes, their ranges are not necessarily narrowly defined and restricted to the typical range of pocket pairs and AQ/KQs/AJs here, it could contain even more speculative hands.
