UTG only 17 hands but 25/25
CO 31/10 AF 0.3 /3 bet 11.4 (35) over 81 hands

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

i thought about 4 betting pre but given the CO wide 3bet i decided to flat to keep weaker hands in. thoughts please?

i lead out the flop because i thought b/f was better than x/c.

when they both called my bet i feel like im done the chances my QQ are still ahead are slim

all thoughts and comments welcome and thanx in advance

Hi pokerspants,

I would always prefer 4betting pre to isolate CO, especially when you can put him on a wide 3betting range.

Calling in a spot like that will leave you in gross postflop situations very often. You will have to play an overpair on many different boards oop against two opponents lacking initiative. Besides, calling gives the original raiser a very profitable spot for a free flop in case he has a medium strength hand/pair/suited connector to outflop you both.

As played I think both leading and x/r can be fine. I would x/r more often if CO is really aggressive so you will most likely get the chance to isolate him once more in that case.

I would definitely jam this turn for value. Both opponents calling OTF caps their ranges to a certain extent and I think you will have the best hand here quite a lot.

I think you have to 4bet here unless with a v v good read and remember that you ll be out of position after the flop. On the flop I don't really like the donk bet suddenly to only fold after... I would have stuck in and jammed the turn many times here or check/raised the flop.. Many times you are ahead here and you may get called by and pair and Ace kicker or a pair like 10 10 or J J too...

Don't ever 4b/fold QQ preflop on 100 bb stacks. I challenge you to do the math in exploration of your own question.

yeah, when you decide to slowplay QQ like this, Opting for check-raise on the flop would be best.
