      Hero (CO): $11.36 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2,0, Hands: 110055

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with Q :heart: Q :diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.30, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.30, called to let the fish joinBTN raises to $0.50, 2 folds, UTG raises to $1.25, well here I had no clue what to do. 4b and protect vs UTG?
      I mean, Nearly always UTG calls, and we go 3way postflop. I want to target the fish, that is why I coldcalled in the beginning, didnt't expect a 3bet from him.

      I think utg range would be something like JJ+ AK, because button raise was small so utg would re raise with a wider range.

      I think raising can be a good option against this range for value.

      Calling isn't too bad either as you can get button to possibly call and put in more money into the pot witha worse hand. However considering the willingness of button to play hands I think he would also call a raise from you, making raising a better option for value against button.

      Hi!


      Are we folding AK? We`re getting considerably less equity than QQ. And with action showed before, we could be easily dominated.

      Hi.

      My first instinct is to ship here with QQ/AK. I just think that UTG's 4b range is much wider than JJ+/AK. The short stacker with 10bb should be perceived to be stacking off fairly wide, which would in turn make UTG 4b stuff like 99 for value.

      If that is the case, then QQ is a no-brainer 4bet. Is that true though? I'm a little worried about 3% 3bet from BTN but due to his stack size and sample size I think we should probably ignore this.

      Thanks.
