      According to this article http://www.pokerstrategy.org.uk/strategy/no-limit/169/
      I should fold queen against SSS player, who raised early position. If I think that big stacks is also same tight, then my fold would be right, because my equity only has 47,4%

      Hi Kaitz,

      In my opinion, I think you are being far too conservative here...especially for NL25 (as I mentioned in your AK thread.) Unless you are 100% positive that UTG+2 ONLY raises with AA or KK in this position, there is no way you should be folding Qs. In order to have that accurate of a read, you need a whole lot of hands against this player. Just my humble opinion though...

      I'd be raising JJ+, AQ+ in that position (which gives you the 47.5%), AJ occasionally. Now QQ isn't good against that range but you'd better believe that there are much looser players, it's not a fold without reads.

      On a Nl $25 table (who are often pretty tight because of all the Small Stacks) a Deep Stack good also raise with 99+, AJs, AQ, AK and you still have fold Equity if your re-raise. So I think the Fold is a bit to weak here, especially without any reads.
