      Was without HUD at the time, but included stats:

      Poker Stars $5.00 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players - View hand 2146805

      BTN: $2.18 - VPIP: 28, PFR: 11, 3B: 0, AF: 3.0, Hands: 18
      SB: $17.98 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 20, 3B: 26, AF: 8.0, Hands: 61
      BB: $6.28 - VPIP: 64, PFR: 9, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 11
      Hero (UTG): $5.72 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 13, 3B: 3, AF: 3.9, Hands: 37366
      MP: $10.82 - VPIP: 0, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 2
      CO: $7.91 - VPIP: 100, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 1

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is UTG with Q :heart: Q :club:
      Hero raises to $0.15, 1 fold, CO calls $0.15, BTN calls $0.15, 1 fold, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.62) 3 :diamond: 9 :club: 6 :diamond: (4 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.50, CO folds, BTN raises to $1.50, BB folds, Hero raises to $2.50, BTN calls $0.53 all in

      Turn: ($4.68) 7 :club: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      River: ($4.68) 9 :diamond: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      Flop: I assume my opponent could do this with TT, JJ, 9x, a flush draw or possibly overcards or 78. He will also have stronger hands sometimes but since he only started the hand with 40BB, I don't know him to be a decent short stacker so I assume QQ will do well against his range.

      I'm pretty confident this was a solid play but it got me thinking...

      How would you act if villain started hand with a 100BB and was still unknown?

      Hi Raknyo,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given BTNs stack size and limited information we have a pretty "simple decision" in stacking off here. Well played !

      If he was 100 BB I would still consider stacking off given the amount of worse hands that he can have (and very few better, just sets)
