  • is it possible to fold QQ?

    Hello guys! I was just playing 4-man sng when this situation arose. I had KK in the BTN and made a standard pf raise. My opponent was unlucky enough to wake up with QQ. He reraised and i called. My question is: is it possible to lay down QQ in that spot? did he overplay an overpair? On the other hand, if the flop came: 7Q7 rainbow, is it possible to muck KK? thanx for the help umbup:

      Hi Super Rascal,

      After you raise and get a call I like the villans 3bet. A normal 3bet here without the caller would be to 180, with the caller you're looking more towards 240. 280 is a little larger which I think is fine also since QQ is a strong premium hand and he would be out of position also if you call him.

      You flat the 3bet, which is good in terms of deception but I would like to ensure we get more value. I would probably 4bet here with KK either to something small that the villan can't fold to, or allin and try to commit our villan preflop.

      On the flop you only have 690 behind and there is 620 in the pot. You can never fold on a 7Q7 flop here you are committed. I think the villan bet on the flop is fine also any bet commits both of you so just putting you in is pretty standard here.

      Nice pot.
