      Guy reraises me, so I pressume QQ, KK or AA and call. The board shows up with nothing, so I bet to represent a strong hand. When he reraises me I have to bail out. I probably should have 3bet to represent a premade hand in flop, but didn't want to be put all in by a KK or AA.

      Hi.

      Preflop: I suppose at NL2 people are passive, usually at higher limits I'll 4bet this to 60 cents. I think calling is the best play here.

      Flop: We assigned him a range of QQ-AA Preflop, and now we bet the Flop? I think your logic here is very inconsistent. Why would you want to bluff when your opponent's range is strong?

      I would probably just c/c once and see how it goes. I don't necessarily agree with the range you assigned BU, it could be wider than that. If we felt that villain only has QQ-AA, we should definitely have folded preflop.

      Thanks.

      Why you thanking me? I should thank you for making me see a very obvious mistake. (:

      Thanks.
