      Preflop: 3bet size? What to do with QQ if I got 4beted lightly or if he shoves?

      Hi,


      I'll usually make it 3.5x the original raise preflop out of position, so around
      $0.25 seems about right there. You only have 100bb effective against him so provided he's fishy or he at least has a clue about what is going on in those steal/resteal situations you should probably be willing to felt QQ in that spot.

      Also "light 4bet" means it's a bluff, which you can't know yet. I'm probably going broke preflop regardless of what he does at nl2 without a read on the player.


      Hope it helps.
