      Dont 4bet/bluff as it makes no sense.
      If your opponent is tight u should fold even if he 3bets TT+,AK because he continues with AK,QQ+ and your 4bet is not profitable.
      You could call the 3bet though and play ip with a good hand, but you should know how to play it as it is not easy at all.

      This. 4-bet/folding QQ really has no merit, it doesn't accomplish anything. You'll make him think you have KK+, so he'll fold worse than QQ because he looks like a reg and he won't flatcall a 4-bet for 35% of his stack out of position. Which means the only way you're getting action after your 4-bet is if you're a 4:1 dog in the hand already, which is really a awful situation to put yourself into. You might as well have 32o instead of QQ.

      Usually calling and playing postflop knowing he can probably have AK is better, even if you call a c-bet on every flop out there you still won't have committed as much money as you did with your 4-bet bluff.


      Hope it helps.
