      Dealt to Hero Q:diamond: Q:spade:

      UTG calls $0.20, UTG+1 raises to $0.80, fold, BTN calls $0.80, fold, Hero raises to $3.60, fold, UTG+1 calls $2.80, fold

      FLOP ($8.30) 7:club: 2:heart: T:diamond:

      Hero bets $5, UTG+1 raises to $17.18 (AI), Hero folds

      UTG+1 wins $17.39
      So opp. was solid reg so far 21/15 3.1 aggro, 33% fold to 3-bet.
      So my line looks like JJ+, but he snap ships. AA/KK would have this line often and i also might be up against set. Ofc i invested alot but felt really beat, i duno about KK here but defo won't fold AA there cos i beat JJ+. Would like to hear about the same hand but me just having KK here! THX.

      I wouldn't squeeze here with QQ...I either call or shove.
      Is it a mistake to go all-in preflop? 47% vs JJ+, AKo, AKs.

      Hi,

      sqz pre is fine.
      UTG+1 only folds 33% to 3-bet.
      So I'd bet/snapcall that flop with QQ and ofc with KK as well.
      Reason: Villain can play JJ, AT, Tx, 99, 98s that way too.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      Wheel i guess that is a mistake, you are getting called rearlly cos initial raiser as i sad was solid reg. They will call KK+ cos nobody ever fold that at NL20 pre but he have to be bad to call with AKo/s cos in best you are flipping. JJ wouldn't call a shove there unless its a fish, so why shove risking so much to win such a small amount.

      Wheel ofc if you are playing NL50 the game there is bit more agro. and your reason hands might really be his range there. But at NL20 there are agro regs who play AT, JJ, 98s like that but i had some reads on him. The range i put him on i would beat JJ there only and that guy wansn't playing AT like that for sure not talk about 99. When you play one limit for a long time you start to understand the ranges of regs way more what they go broke with. So i guess my play will be +EV in long run. Ofc i would like to hear some more answers from regs who play NL20 daily.

      I would b/c flop, since pot is really big, you've put in 40% of your stack in 3-bet pot with overpair.
      Really hard to put player on KK+ or set or if he is also calling with JJ and lower pp-s, he may easily shove flop JJ or 99.
      And also I think he isn relaly shoving all the times there sets, since board is really so dry that better let you keep barreling hands that has 10% or less equity
