      According to my range I should be stacking here preflop, however, I don't really see too many random villains 4bet/stacking worse here, right?

      I've heard several times that QQ "doesn't flop well" - what exactly does that mean?

      As played, I feel like I isolate myself to the hands that I was trying to avoid when calling the 4bet instead of 5bet jamming, with the addition of some AK draws etc.

      What is the recommended action in a spot like this and why?'

      i think he could stack off worse maybe JJ+ AQ+ but that entirely depends on the opponent, he could go as tight as KK+ AK here.

      "QQ" does not flop well means that 50% of the time we see A or K which makes QQ 2nd pair on the board.

      on this board its wet although i dont think it hits his 4bet range, i would expect mainly broadways on his range and overpairs. against that range i think when we jam most of the overcards would fold and pairs and strong draws would call. however if we make a small raise to like 4.5 i think he could jam some worse hands he would otherwise have folded.
