KO $ 7.50 tournament starts second hand and we have QQ without villain reading.
Would you leave QQ with the possibilities of approximately 70% over any Ax?
I even thought about limping to see if A or K was not on the flop, but when I saw it, the stack was already on the table. I myself would not play the villain's move with AJo in the beginning.
at the very beginning of the tournament, when we have almost 200 big blinds and absolutely no information about the table, after 4-bet I suggest folding QQ. Too often we will see AA, KK or AK there. An advantage over other aces will not cover losses. Perhaps you can go all-in with QQ in this situation in the freeroll.
Even this early in the tournament, you can use the limited information you have. The variance on your reads will be higher, but it will still serve you well in the long run.
It seems like the first hand was taken down by Villain after a min-raise and 3 calls. Perhaps you can tell the style of Villain by their bet sizing. If they are someone who doesn't appear to have a good sense of bet sizing, chances are he won't judge his range correctly either.
He raises to 6 BB after a limp, so he's definitely heavier than most people would advocate for. At this point, your 3-bet is correct, and I like your sizing. Generally, I'd prefer a smaller 3-bet size when in position, but you'll have to up your sizing 200 BB deep to not give good implied odds to speculative hands.
He shoves and at this point I think you have to call. When you have uncertain reads, you favor a population read; the population at this level wants to have a chip advantage early way too much. "Double up or bust." Add in the fact that the guy is off with his sizings, and I'd comfortably give him a range of TT+, ATs+, AJo+. Perhaps even looser. QQ is way ahead of this range, which makes this a correct call in my eyes.
