I'm trying to use the hand replayer, not sure if I've got it right. I thought that the villian had been calling light and/or representing hands based on the board. I would appreciate any suggestions on how I can improve my play.

Not to be unhelpful here, but I don't see anything in particular that you did wrong. You raised preflop with QQ, which is the standard play, especially out of position. You made a pot-sized value bet on the flop (the bigger the better if you're going to get stationy calls, so ), you called an over-the-top shove in a spot where you were very likely to be ahead, and you were observing your opponents and using your reads.

Thanks for the replies, I've been on a bad streak lately and starting to doubt my game. I had a run of about 8 or 10 of these over the course of a few days, all of them with the last two coming on the turn and river.

I just keep telling myself, that if the villian needs to draw two to beat me, then I made the right play. But its still hard, sometimes, to keep up your confidence.

Thanks again!!
