      NL Holdem $0.05(BB) Replayer
      SB ($4.73)
      BB ($3.52)
      Hero ($8.73)
      CO ($1.88)
      BTN ($6.44)

      Dealt to Hero Q:diamond: Q:heart:

      Hero raises to $0.20, fold, fold, SB raises to $0.65, fold, Hero calls $0.45

      FLOP ($1.35) 8:heart: 6:spade: 2:heart:

      SB bets $1.05, Hero raises to $8.08 (AI), SB calls $3.03 (AI)

      Villain was playing 19/12/5.0/44h. Ok play or is 4-betting to $1.5 (or something) and fold to shove fine. I hate going broke pre vs tight players with QQ. That is, in my exerience, VERY -EV. Of course I'm not folding the flop because then I could just as well fold to the 3-bet.

      Fine by me if you don't want to go broke preflop, especially if you think he c-bets AK there.

      There are times where we just can't avoid the coolers, if we try to hard to do so we just end up playing way too tight. NH.

      Hope it helps.
