      NH of course.

      But your Q4 BTN bet is a little bit questionable. I dont want to play those hands. I think that it is not necessary to have such wide open range on BTN.

      I agree very much, because BB is too loose to play this hand profitable.
      Don't steal, if you can not steal.

      Although there are only 29 hands, VPIP of 60% is way too much to play it.
      As the saying goes - "If opponents play loose, you play tight and if opponents play tight, you play loose."

      About 20% range seems OK to play here against calling stations. These are a good spots to be nitty. :)


      Good luck at the tables everyone!

      Q4o is not so good for steal, there is not a lot of foldequity.

      Postflop is hard stuff, if such a players makes action you might have a problem, but 2pair must be good enough.

      I dont think he bluffs here, but he can overplay every time Qx-hands.
