      I just reviewed this hand and saw villain's stats (46/19/3b 7.1). Now I think that I should really just push there. But at the moment villain 3 bet me so quickly preflop and cbet pot so quickly too. It just looked so damn strong. Also I was focusing on the other QQ I had on the other table so I just folded here.

      Here is the other QQ:

      Final Pot: $22.83.

      I was thinking hard what to do when villain bet turn. Overpair is unlikely as he flat preflop. He might have a monster: a set or a made flush. But I didn't see a made flush raising on the flop. So I put him on a TPTK or TPTK + Nut FD there and just pushed turn. If there was a set then so be it.

      I have to admit that folding the first QQ annoyed me a little bit and influenced the way I play this hand.

      4bet/broke the first hand. Or raise/call pre-flop and jam the flop.

      The second hand is hard to say with no stats. Personally I'm not to happy when he raises the flop because I don't really wanna call oop... too many bad cards can come for us. But then I don't like bet/shove either. He can easily have a set... he can also perfectly have a made flush, in fact if he's a good player he probably is raising his flush here cause he's afraid a 4th will either kill his hand or kill his action.
      Meh... if he's a nit I just shrug and fold the flop vs his raise. If he's aggro I'm just jamming it right there I think.
