      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:diamond: , Q:spade:
      4 folds, MP3 raises to $1,00, Hero raises to $3,00, 3 folds, MP3 raises to $19,00, Hero calls $8,15 (All-In), MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Definitely a cooler. Easy come easy go. His re re raise though is screaming KK or AA, and you could have folded here, but it wouldn't have been an easy decision.

      tough decision mainly because you've doubled up your stack already. a fold wouldn't be wrong here imo, as you leave your raise there but are still in profit at the table and you should leave when next to the blinds. as for the hand, villain usually is on AK, QQ+ if he 4bet pushes preflop on those limits/his position. not sure you get +ev from calling that

      Well as you see it from a bigstack perspective: he only raises AA/KK if he plays a basic BSS strategy.

      However your stack is only 40bb and therefore I shove QQ here ;)

      Best regards,
