      Hero (MP1): $10 (100 bb)
      MP2: $10.45 (104.5 bb)
      MP3: $4 (40 bb)
      CO: $5.89 (58.9 bb)
      BTN: $18.98 (189.8 bb)
      SB: $6.67 (66.7 bb)-VPIP 26%-PFR 8%-PFAF 1.1-3Bet 4.7%(43)-Hands 124

      UTG+1: $11.81 (118.1 bb)
      UTG+2: $12.04 (120.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with K A
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 4 folds, SB raises to $6.67 and is all-in, BB folds, Hero calls $6.27

      Flop: ($13.44) 7 9 Q (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      Turn: ($13.44) 5 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($13.44) 8 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:
      $13.44 pot ($0.89 rake)
      Final Board: 7 9 Q 5 8
      Hero showed K A and lost (-$6.67 net)
      SB showed Q Q and won $12.55 ($5.88 net)


      SB is Lose Pasive over 100 hands, I thought Vs a Mid Stack Shove instead of 3Bet that I should Call with AK, but maybe I need to stop wanting to fist pump call everytime I have Qs and AK Vs these Mid Stack and Short Stack players in Rush, I think I can be to impaitient in Fast Fold games and since nobody stacks off pre I want to make the most with Qs+ AK?

      Hey BigAl123456,

      SB has a low PFR and a low-ish 3bet. The times he has 3bet in the past may have been normal size 3bets.

      Fold is going to to be fine in this spot. Usually you are just taking a coinflip for the sake of it here. My general guideline is only stack pre-flop with KK/AA in 10nl rush unless you have stats to say you can so wider.

      Hey what about Vs what stack, I mean like obv if they have like 20BB then stacking Qs should be fine, but whats like the CO in general?

      As a rough guide it's probably when they get into the territory of one of the shorter stack strategies, i.e 40bb or below, where shoving wider becomes common.

      Btw, I'm not saying your pf call is necessarily incorrect. There is a decent argument for making it. I don't think it's a bad play or anything.

      Personally I'd muck the hand and save myself the variance. You may be slightly ahead of his range but he could also be playing on a level and only shoving AA/KK. At least vs a 40bb stack and below they are way more likely to show up with AT-AQ and stuff.
