      If you say he was tight, then i wouldn't go for the 4 bet here, just call and re-evaluate post flop. After you 4 bet 30BB you are commited :)

      Those blind wars spots are hard to comment on, you have to make a lot of guesses as to how BB approaches those situations.

      If he's the type to simply 3-bet with a wide polarized range, meaning junk and QQ+/AK, what will happen if you 4-bet is he will dump all the junk and shove on you with a range you're committed against but not a favorite by any mean. If he doesn't felt AK suddenly you're smoked and not yet committed against QQ+. I think this type of tags is quite common these days, they just have what I call level 1 aggression, they make one aggressive move like 3-betting light and then revert to standard play when you playback. Trying to go broke with a wider value range is a mistake against those players, they won't ever make a mistake per se once you 4-bet. You're usually better off calling the 3-bet even out of position to make sure you keep all those junk hands in a spot where they will usually be forced to throw out a c-bet on most flops and make mistakes that way.

      If he's the type to 3-bet/5-bet with a wider value range like TT+/AK and/or capable of 5-bet shoving light because it's a blind battle, then by all means go all the way with QQ and be happy about it. I must say I think those guys are quite the rarity at nl10 in my opinion.

      Hope it helps.
