Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

I have no reads on anyone, this is 0,01/0,02 cent ZOOM NL Holdem. Im afraid my low bankroll is making me to tight

I think these folds are correct. In a full ring game, AK is not a stack off hand heads up without reads. QQ can be a stack off hand when heads up, but when there's a cold 3-bet shove and call, you're in much worse shape. Villains showed AK and AQ this time, but often one of the players will have KK/AA.

FWIW, I would recommend you avoid Zoom if you're new to the real money games. I think you'll learn much more useful poker skills if you play a couple of regular tables, because you'll be able to pick up reads, and see some showdowns. Maximising your winrate depends on finding ways to exploit each players' leaks. If villains are basically "unknown" you can't find their leaks.

Thanks for the analysis.

I have been playing poker for about 10 years now so i know the basics

And i like ZOOM because i can play very tight aggresive and still play alot of hands. My current bankroll doesnt allow it really (started bankrollbuilder a few days ago). And i can still see some of the showdowns when i fold, turned the observe button on.
