    [/replayer][/converted_hand] When villian 4 bets me pre flop, i am putting him on AA, KK or AKs... Is that pretty decent, considering i am only play 15/15 at this table over last 142 hands and he still 4 bets me. So basically by calling the 4 bet, i am set mining myself or hoping to pick up some decent draws. What do you think if this is good fold or not? Also, the C bet on flop percentage for villian is only 20% over 234 hands... So if he c bets strong with worrying about the K, it has to be AA or AK or KK

    Don't really have much reads but got some stats over last 250 hands or so
    22/16 with 6.1 3-bet% and fold to 3-bet only 17% and 4 bet is 17%

      Definately it is ok to fold QQ here.

      The pre flop 3bet is just fine, as is the flat of the 4bet.

      A lot of a 4bettor's range is going to have QQ in trouble with a K on the flop, as pre-flop he has narrowed what he may hold considerably. When he follows up with a slightly less than half pot bet on the flop, you gotta be really worried he spiked that K (with an AK), or held a pp bigger than yours all along.

      With the pot at $17+, your only options are to move all in or fold here, and that K is scary enough that moving in is probably not winning you enough in the long run to run the risk of slamming head long into AK or AA.

      There is a chance he out-played you with JJ/TT or some such, but I'd think that is a small enough chance you really don't need to sweat it. at least you kept $25 you can use to punish the table in clearer spots later on...

        You can definitely fold QQ here. It's much better to lose $5.50, than to lose your whole stack. I also agree with the hands that the opp should have basically crush QQ (AA, KK, AK).

        Same situation if you have KK and an A hits... the opp will normally have AK or outside chance at AQ... both of which will beat KK.

          I would definitely fold as he re-raised you preflop and then raised again on the flop with the higher card out there.You probably saved some cash.I'd call it a good read,but i'm no pro.Best of luck in the future.

            +1. If his 4B range is KK+ and AK then you are now beat by 100% of his range on this flop.
