I had no information on my opponent , should I have folded my hand instead of going all-in ?

That hand's just bad luck. Unless the opp was playing extremely, extremely tight.... I'm calling that every time with QQ. The only hands you're behind are KK or AA, which is against the odds (but will happen every so often).

Rough spot.

QQ is going to be pretty good some of the time here, but is going to be plenty bad other times.

Your actions up to the shove were pretty spot on, but I do see why he'd immediately re-shove KK.

This is a spot where you MAY want to fold wihout info, as the range is pretty tight. Of course being blind on blind, you may also have someone thinking YOU are running the squeeze light...

So your call is fine, and a fold would have been fine too.

As JWK said, just bad luck you happened to choose wrongly.

Very very tough spot here... but I wouldn't have folded.. never, basically b/c he's a random. You've got to have some reads to fold this imo
