      I started playing cash games today and I was just wondering if I could have playd this hand better somehow. This guy was a unknown and only got 10 hands on him.

      I was 100% sure he either got AA,KK so this felt so wrong to do but maybe this was the right way to play the hand?

      I usually flat pre vs a UTG raiser with QQ.

      Try using pokerstrategy hand converter in the future, but yes his utg 4-bet range is generally KK+ so with QQ you can flat him in position and play it post flop. By 3-betting you just isolate yourself against KK+ and his probably folding a lot of his range that you beat. And it always sucks to fold QQ vs 3-bet. Its better to 3-bet some Ax hands as a bluff that you can easily fold to his 4-bet.

      I think QQ is strong enough hand to play there for stacks so I don´t mind your 3-bet and then shoving over his 4-bet
      If you think his opening range is very tight then just call pf and play postflop ip
