      Hey staselu,

      Usually fine to fold this preflop. You are likely behind SB's range for 3betting vs MP and you don't have the odds to setmine.

      In particular we need 3bet stat vs MP. If it really is 6% vs MP then calling might be ok. My guess is it's probably a lot less SB vs MP.

      3bet from sb 7%
      3bet vs MP 4%

      Thanks.

      So against a range of 4% QQ is coinflipping.

      The other problem is, when you flop an overpair, if villain has a hand like AK he might not put any more money in. If he has an overpair like AA/KK you could end up losing a lot of money.

      So while in terms of direct pot odds you might just be able to argue a call, you suffer from a lot of reverse implied odds in this situation. It likely won't be profitable in the long run to call.
