    He seems to be a bad-agressive guy. Against him what is the good play on the flop? I was afraid of the A, so I check/fold on the flop. It was good, or against this type of opponent just go broke on the flop? And he was 3-betting quite a lot preflop.

    Hi Nocco.

    Pre flop I think your raise is fine, as is your 4bet. QQ is going to play really well vs a loose aggro guy like this, so setting up a low SPR which may lead him to stick around of weak top pair hands and weak draws if/when you get most all your chips in on a over pair on the flop is a good thing for you.

    However, sometimes (~43%) QQ will see an over card on the flop...

    When that A flops enough of the opp's range will consist of weak Aces to really make you think you could be beat. With only 2 outs to catch up, it is really not a wise move to put the remaining 75% in on the CHANCE he might hold a J, or that he might fold a draw.

    This guy should give you enough better spots later on that I think your fold is fine.

    Hope it helps.
