      Too weak to fold the QQ on the turn after his reraise?It felt like a A and with his stats(calling station type) i opted for the fold here

      C-bet bigger on the flop, $0.14 is better.

      As played on the turn if you're wrong you're 2-outing out of position, it's usually best to just get out of the way especially if your opponent looks tight. There aren't even any combo hand he could have improved to on the turn for him to spazz out with and he's most likely never raising Jx there, so really i think you're looking at two pairs or better too often to do anything but fold.

      Hope it helps.
