Two Preflop Spots $109 100k

Hey guys,

I'm a rec player recently getting back into the game. I had 2 spots pre yesterday I wanted some input on.

First hand - Only had 20 hands with V but we've seen him 3b button with 66 earlier on and 3b jammed 2 of the last 10 hands that went through. Is this an easy fold or do you get it in here?

Blinds 300/600
Stacks:
UTG - UTG (T17,831)
UTG+1 - UTG+1 (T53,970)
MP - MP (T52,347)
MP2 - MP2 (T32,115)
CO - CO (T25,105)
BTN - BTN (T20,360)
SB - Hero (T42,408)
BB - BB (T26,269)

Preflop: (T1,500, 8 players) Hero is SB with Ts Tc
UTG raises to T17,756 (all-in), 5 folds, Hero ??


Second hand I had just moved to this table 3 hands prior. I had under 40 hands from UTG/ Mp2 so not sure their stats are relevant. I had 213 hands with CO who is Vpip 18 pfr 10 3b 2. I felt confident with the fold here with 4 players behind but want to make sure I'm not lighting $ on fire doing so.

Blinds 300/600
Stacks:
UTG - UTG (T43,963)
UTG+1 - UTG+1 (T31,900)
MP - MP (T34,946)
MP2 - MP2 (T63,789)
CO - CO (T18,860)
BTN - Hero (T23,152)
SB - SB (T46,233)
BB - BB (T24,775)

Preflop: (T1,500, 8 players) Hero is BTN with Qh Qd
UTG raises to T1,200, 2 folds, MP2 raises to T3,600, CO raises to T18,785 (all-in), Hero ??


Thanks for checking these out

I’d call Hand 1 and fold Hand 2, hand 2 is pretty gross—it’s not so much that you have 4 players behind you, it’s the action ahead of you that scares me. Sucks though, I’m rarely folding QQ, but this seems like a reasonable spot to do so

hand 1, easy call. Sucks when they have better. Hand 2, just sick spot. No way you can play it poorly. Folding, jamming, flatting all have merit.

H1 I have been folding vs UTG opens because it is so unlikely we are ahead unless we are flipping. Would UTG dump close to 30 bb's with 77-99?

H2 is the bane of my existence. Because UTG has opened I always fold (live) to aggressive action behind like this. And I have been wrong every time. If we shove my guess is we get AK to fold. Not sure if we really see AA/KK much here. I don't play online so I just don't know. At some point I hope I shove here.
