      Full Tilt - $0.25 NL - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      UTG: $24.65 (VPIP: 4.11, PFR: 2.74, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 73)
      MP: $9.10 (VPIP: 22.76, PFR: 19.35, 3Bet Preflop: 4.33, Hands: 638)
      Hero (CO): $43.05
      BTN: $8.75 (VPIP: 10.99, PFR: 8.79, 3Bet Preflop: 3.03, Hands: 94)
      SB: $56.64 (VPIP: 31.58, PFR: 7.89, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 38)
      BB: $25.00 (VPIP: 13.91, PFR: 10.76, 3Bet Preflop: 2.08, Hands: 385)

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has Q:diamond: Q:spade:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.75, fold, SB calls $0.65, fold

      The small blind had an AF of 1.3

      Flop: ($1.75, 2 players) 9:diamond: 4:spade: 2:spade: SB checks, Hero bets $1.10, SB raises to $4.75, Hero calls $3.65

      Turn%s: ($11.25, 2 players) T:club: SB bets $7.70, Hero calls $7.70

      River%s: ($26.65, 2 players) 7:club: SB bets $13.10, Hero calls $13.10

      The flop C/R was scary. But with the villains loose stats (though with a small sample size) I could see a lot of hands think they are ahead like A9, TT, JJ.

      I really don't know how to react to this c/r as my hand is still very strong. Did I do a good job keeping the pot small through calling down (not raising), or should I have just given up on the flop after the aggression?

      Hey PhoenixPhreak,

      Standard option is just to fold QQ to flop c/r at these stakes.

      It's true villain may be loose, but his low PFR suggests he is not aggressive. This means a lot of worse hands will go into his flop flatting range while his flop c/r range consists of mainly sets.

      Another thing to consider is - the price you get on the flop is not the true price you are getting since you don't close the action. You also have to be concerned about the fact that very often you may need to face turn and river barrels.
