      The way he played, i thought TT-JJ or flush draw. Is it ok to play my QQ this way? I guess i have no other choice. The one thing that made me think a little about this play is villains stats. With stats like that, how often do you see there TT-JJ?

      VPIP/PFR/AF/Hands 13/12/4/112
      WTSD/W$SD 45/56

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, Q.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.40, CO folds, Hero raises to $1.20, BB folds, MP3 calls $0.80.

      Flop: ($2.5) 8, 6, 3 (2 players)
      MP3 bets $1.20, Hero raises to $3.00, MP3 calls $1.80.

      Turn: ($8.5) 2 (2 players)
      MP3 bets $3.00, Hero raises to $6.06, MP3 calls $3.06.

      River: ($20.62) 2 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $20.62.

      I think he would be inclined to check/call maybe 99-JJ so it more looks like a set that want's to get raised or a flushdraw with 2 overcards which too wants to get raised or just to cbet for some reason.Timing would be a good note here on the flop after you raise him if he calls fast he often has a set.

      I think it's played ok overall.

      Preflop: Just because he's nitty it doesn't mean he's not calling with worse stuff and playing terrible postflop. If you find out he is also folding massively to 3bets, then flatting becomes better.

      Flop: This can prob be stuff like 99-JJ or AK that doesn't know what to do, or occasionally QQ+. I would prob just call since he sometimes might fold the lower stuff when you raise. Then on the turn he will quite often check/call or just keep betting with it.

      Turn: Once you raise flop, you are going with the hand.

      All valid points. Only thing I'd add is that when a guy is 13/12, the small gap between vpip and pfr usually indicates he's not calling stuff light so far, so I'd rather make the assumption that he's not calling 3bets super light until proven otherwise, you burn yourself a lot less that way than by assuming the opposite and being wrong.

      Hope it helps.
