      Gross spot. Playing a 4-way pot out of position with QQ isn't tempting at all, especially since the BUvCO 3-bet doesn't necessarily mean much these days so there is a good chance we're ahead of their ranges. That being said, we don't really want to get it in for 180bb with QQ either, so we're not thrilled with a 4-bet either. Depends how you want to play it really, i'd probably cold4bet to $1.6 and find a fold if a tag 5-bets, otherwise i'm likely calling it off on the offchance some fish just decided it was a good idea to jam crap there.

      As played postflop there isn't much you can do after donking but calling it off. Usually i just check to BU and reevaluate from there.

      Hope it helps.
