Given your chip stack and how many were limping in here i think i would have shoved Preflop here. but that said I guess that villain would have called!!

Given the Ace on the flop Personally I'm not worried I'm beat but we are committed to the hand which may well be a good reason for pushing all in Preflop.

What tourney was this in.

Hey Wetmoose!

With 4 limpers, a std raise is to 3BB+1BB for each limper or 7BB (1050). With how much of the stack that is, I'm shoving here every time. I don't think a raise to 675 is going to accomplish much here, as it's too small and won't make the opps fold.
The small raise preflop invites too many of the limpers to play the hand because it gives them odds to see the flop.... and QQ plays much better aganist a smaller number of opps. Also, by being in the BB, if I'd play to see the flop, any A or K makes it a tough decision due to being out of position.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

and me = 4 people

no doubt all in preflop

if they all fold it's a nice chip up without the need of showdown which you can easily lose to any A or K and any suited that can make a flush just like this one
