      Hi,

      Preflop I raised because I didn't want to fold and I didn't want to play oop against 3.
      I don't think he would take that line with QQ+, I thought he might have JJ or AK, maybe worse, so I called, what do you think?

      Hi Botia,

      Preflop: This really all comes down to pot odds.

      MP2 is super nitty so he can take this line with QQ/KK and even TT/JJ/AK

      You are calling 8.4 to win roughly 20.45 or so which means that you need, before rake, at least 41% equity. Do you have that? What range did you have him on and what are our odds versus it?

      I don't have the equity, that way, but I still think he rarely has QQ/KK. I don't think someone would just call a 0.30c raise with those, i think most of the time villains raise...
