      UTG: $3.49 (34.9 bb)
      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      Hero (MP): $17.09 (170.9 bb)
      BTN: $10.05 (100.5 bb)
      CO: $11.34 (113.4 bb)
      SB: $11.83 (118.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with Q Q
      UTG raises to $0.20, Hero raises to $0.65, CO raises to $2.10, 4 folds, Hero raises to $17.09 and is all-in, CO calls $9.24 and is all-in

      Flop: ($23.03) J 3 J (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      Turn: ($23.03) 9 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($23.03) 2 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      $23.03 pot ($1 rake)
      Final Board: J 3 J 9 2
      Hero showed Q Q and lost (-$11.34 net)
      CO showed K K and won $22.03 ($10.69 net)

      at the time i put this down to a cooler but i'm not so sure now. CO SEEMS like a tricky regular. he loves to 3bet - 12.9% over 442 hands. i didnt check his 4bet stat at the time because this needs a huge sample, but looking at it now it is 17.6% which is HUGE but probably not enough sample.

      given how it's a cold 4bet, can i get away from this? is it fine to 3bet/fold QQ/AK here?

      Hi DrDunne,

      I would say that 99/100 times at 10nl cold 4-bets are the nuts, even from more aggro regs.

      Also keep in mind that you 3-bet UTG and he 4-bets MP with UTG being shorter.

      So I think that at 10nl this is a fold. If this was 25nl or 50nl+ it would be a 5-bet.
