      Hi.

      He's a fish, and he opens 20% from UTG over a small sample. 3-betting is really standard and I don't think we should fold QQ here to the 4bet unless you think his 4betting range is super strong.

      He doesn't seem super passive to me, if he was something like a 35/5 then maybe I would consider folding QQ here.

      Thanks.
