      Hi,


      Too thin against those guys most likely, you're like almost bluffing with QQ if you cold4bet. You risk immediately 100bb since you'll be committed to calling and your opponents will be faced with a very easy decision: either they have KK+ and they stack you or they don't and they can go away with a smile after only losing a few big blinds. Their raise/folding & reraise/folding ranges just don't look wide enough to warrant you felting 100bb, it won't make up for the vast majority of the times you get it in as a 4:1 dog.

      Again most players will just 4-bet QQ regardless because it's QQ and since you'll take away the dead money some of the time it can never be awful, I just don't think it's a winning strategy to go broke preflop with QQ against nitty guys at microstakes.


      Hope it helps.
