This is a discussion on $25 NLHE 6-max: QQ too good to fold? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; I had just lost a big hand the hand before and was sat with only 15bbs and pick up queens in the sb. blinds 10/25p
I had just lost a big hand the hand before and was sat with only 15bbs and pick up queens in the sb. blinds 10/25p utg opens to 62p cut off reraises to £3 and button 4 bets to 11 putting me all in if I call some of his range will be AA KK but I thought QQs were too strong to fold and made the call with stack I had behind. Deeper I'm not sure how I would have played Utg folds as does the cut off button has AK and I hold. Would anyone consider a fold in this position or how would you play it deeper stacked ? Didnt have any real reads on the players apart from cutoff 3 bet frequently

I think it's a pretty easy fold, the cold 4 bet from the BTN should be KK+ only, so I think folding is pretty much your only option.

Unless I know BTN is very aggressive, I’m usually folding there and reloading.

My first thought, was how can you let Queens go with only 15 big blinds left? So I reread everything to make sure I understood, that would have been a tough fold but a good fold. I know hindsight's 20/20.

The cold 4bet would make me squirm a bit, but I dont think I would be able to get away from QQ. Probably the "best worst" hand I would be calling off with there in your position. Easy for me to say though I guess after the fact. I dont blame you for putting it all in.

You have approx 45% equity here long term if he 4-bets all combos of KK+ and AK+. Long term unfavorable. That said, I think it may be optimistic to assume someone would cold 4-bet a 3-bet of an utg raise with every combo of AK. So in reality its probably more likely he has a value hand in this specific spot.
15bb? You wont even win a big pot if you win a big flip. I think the correct play here is to fold, top off, and have the depth to play post flop.
If you are deeper you can call and try to set mine or take him off the hand postflop, but against his range its still best to fold.
