  • NL10 SH - Facing 4bet from bu with QQ

    Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite. BB: $10 (100 bb) UTG: $2.96 (29.6 bb) Hero (MP): $10.25 (102.5 bb) CO: $10.56 (105.6 bb) BTN: $11.47 (114.7 bb) SB: $12.76 (127.6 bb) Preflop: Hero is MP with Q Q UTG raises to $0.20, Hero raises to $0.60, CO folds, BTN raises to $2.15, 2 folds, UTG raises to $2.96 and is all-in, Hero folds, BTN calls $0.81 Flop: ($6.67) 6 K J (2 players, 1 is all-in) Turn: ($6.67) Q (2 players, 1 is all-in) River: ($6.67) 2 (2 players, 1 is all-in) Results:

    $6.67 pot ($0.30 rake) Final Board: 6 K J Q 2 UTG showed 8 5 and lost (-$2.96 net) BTN showed A K and won $6.37 ($3.41 net) [/spoiler] UTG is a fish, no read on button. I feel his 4bet is very strong given I 3bet utg as mp, was this a nitty fold? Did the money already in pot warrant a call if I am up against a range of AA/KK/AK from bu?

    Without any specific reads I find it always tricky to 3-bet/fold a valuehand like QQ for 100bb stacksizes or less. People's 4-betting ranges include so many AK combos that we're going to give up on at least valuable equity here a lot. Since we should be ahead vs UTG a lot here and he puts extra deadmoney into the pot I would always go for that and stick it in here. Against a range of QQ+/AK you have 40% equity when called so it can never be too bad.
