      Hero (CO): $6.15 (307.5 bb)
      BTN: $4.99 (249.5 bb)
      SB: $0.95 (47.5 bb)
      BB: $2 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q Q
      Hero raises to $0.06, BTN raises to $0.18, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.46, BTN calls $0.28

      Flop: ($0.95) K 7 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, BTN raises to $1.92, Hero folds

      $2.15 pot ($0.14 rake)
      Final Board: K 7 4
      Hero mucked Q Q and lost (-$1.06 net)
      BTN mucked and won $2.01 ($0.95 net)

      Villain is 26/21 over 88 hands, 17.2% 3bet over 29 hands.

      I think 4betting QQ against a guy this aggressive is pretty mandatory? Or is it better to just call here?

      On the flop, I also wasn't really sure what to do. On the one hand, he called a 4bet in position, which I really didn't know what to make of. On the other hand, I figured he might call here with JJ or TT here or whatever he decided to randomly call with, so I went for a bet/fold.

      Is that a fine line to take, or should we rather check the flop and evaluate from there?

      Preflop: reasonable but u must know what to do vs a 5b. Calling may be the better play.

      Flop: cbet is a little large for a 4b pot. Halfpot should suffice here. I think cc may be a better alternative. As played its probably a fold without too much reads.
