      Yes QQ is the nuts here. If sb is 100bb deep, and a super nit, you can think about calling instead.

      Hi,


      Experiment with it and see what works for you. We've had players treating QQ like the nuts and doing very well, while others seem to always run into KK+ with it.

      Personally i think too many people overplay QQ against microstakes reraising ranges, so when in doubt against players that don't raise often i'd rather make a tight call or fold then go broke too light.

      For this hand in particular since SB is a halfstack, we only have 45 hands and it's a squeeze situation going broke is fine.


      Hope it helps.
