      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q:heart: Q:spade:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to 4 BB, MP raises to 13 BB, MP+1 raises to 50 BB, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold

      MP+1 wins 31.5 BB

      I'm assuming I pretty much have to fold here? I don't see either of the two villains going all in without KK+ or AK if I'm lucky.

      I was mulling over reraising the villain who 3 bet me to about 40 BB and folding if he went all in. Would that be a good play? Playing QQ when 3bet is pretty tricky.

      In this spot, folding the QQ is quite standard. Going broke here will result it us losing money.

      If we only faced a 3bet, 4bet/folding to 40bb will be a bad idea in general.
      We don't really have to turn our hand into a bluff since the guy is most likely to be 3betting KK+ or QQ+, AK at most.
