5/5 QQ flat pre or 3bet/fold?

~$650-700 eff, Hero's the shortest w/ TAG image

V is an older Persian woman with jewelry. Talks smack at the table (I mean that in the best way possible. Great stage-presence). Seems like the loose-passive type that'll only put money in with near-nuts+. Probably plays something like 35/5 pre.

Rest of table: 300bb+ deep. Decent regs & 1 total spewtard.

V opens $40 (standard raises have been 20-25 from rest of table) in EP. Folds to hero in MP w/ QQ. Lagtard either in CO or BTN.

Call. 3-betting is turning QQ into a bluff against this V. If spewtard gets aggressive behind you, you will have a lot of information when it gets back to you and should be able to make the most profitable decision.

With lagtards behind, I'm calling this and hoping for a squeeze attempt. If that happens, ideally V folds, in which case we can 4b/jam. If V 4b, it's a tough spot but folding is prety reasonable. If V calls the squeeze than I think you can still GII and feel ok.

Calling is good. Unless lag is bad I doubt he will be squeezing light here. Does lag know v1's game? Even if he didn't, an 8x open from an older woman when std opens have been 5x seems pretty obvious. Be prepared to fold to multiple barrels with ridiculous sizing from v1 if you guys are heads up.

Re: 5/5 QQ flat pre or 3bet/fold?

I was a little worried by the thread title (folding QQ to a 4bet in a live game, especially <150bb deep?) but yeah, definitely seems like a good spot to flat. A squeeze can be great for you, you want to be flatting more hands vs this sizing and narrow range anyway and if you 3bet, you probably have to fold to a 4bet a lot of the time which is fairly disastrous.
