      Hi,


      Shitty spot but i doubt you can do anything differently without reads once you get there. NH.


      Hope it helps.

      Thanks for replying. I considered 4-bet shoving preflop but then I thought I would lose value and by calling I have position on BB and CO is probably calling with speculative hands so he is not tooo much worry.

      So what's better preflop really - and could you explain why?

      Hi,


      Assuming he's a fish from his stack size, the looser BB is, the better 4-betting and calling it off will be. He will have wider 3bet/folding and 3bet/shoving ranges, allowing you to felt QQ knowing it's a profitable move. However if BB is usually rather tight, he will rarely 3bet/fold and you'll be a dog or flipping when he doesn't fold to you 4bet, which means taking your chances seeing a flop in position is usually the safe move.

      As for CO really, if you know he's pretty straightforward it's fine, otherwise you'll be sandwiched between two players, which is usually a bad spot to get yourself into with a vulnerable hand like QQ when they're not easily predictable, so that would make me lean more towards a 4bet.


      Hope it helps.
