      Hi, let's say nothing about resault of that hand....

      but I realised I have problem with playin' QQ in such spots ;/

      There were only 3 of us in that spot...
      SB = 15/14/2/65 hands/fold to 3bet 50

      How to play that ? That guy was a little tagich, so i don't want to go allin pf...
      I decided to play that: on a flop neither A and K, and I play allin.

      any sugestions ?

      ive considered these situations a lot too lately. its a tough spot.

      there is an interesting thread on QQ when facing a 3-bet here : BSS NL10 - AK/QQ when facing a 3 bet pre flop

      you should read through that too for more information on this.

      you should also consider how he perceives you: does he think you will re-steal light? is he stealing a lot and does he know that you know he is stealing a lot?

      he min 4-bets to less than double your initial raise..... which is strange...

      but i think im just stacking off here pre flop and if the BB has AA/KK oh well.

      but others may disagree with me

      It's a difficult spot since I would fold to a standard 4-bet, but its only a min-raise, so I'm not sure.

      You should shove pf.
      because you would get your money all-in anyway when there isn´t K or A on the board, so why not get all-in pf.
      If he fold AK, then it is good result, and he coudl easily get all-in with JJ, which you´re crushing
