Played through the hand twice and was getting pretty on the fold bandwagon. Then I pressed the extra forward arrow to see results and lol'd.

Bonus points for anyone who can figure out how many combinations of Q9-AQ our opponent can hold on this river?

Wow that is one insane hand.

Umm 4 combinations for every Q-kicker combination, so 4 Q9, 4QT etc etc.

To be honest I might be losing value but I think I'd be raising the turn and trying to get it in while I'm ahead, any queen has picked up a full house and will get it in, and I'd rather that than wait till the river and see another queen, only 1 combination being QQ has you beat on the turn, and lots of Qx full houses that you beat, but on the river all the Qx that you beat on the turn have you beat now.

I tend to agree with Craig, the only way I'm not raising either the flop or turn is if the villain is a big bluffer, then I like flatting to induce him to bluff. Nice of him to gift his stack to you here but against opponents are are at least moderately reasonable, in order to get stacks in you'll need to raise earlier in the hand. I prefer to raise the small flop lead personally, he's not folding a Q at this point nor is he folding a flush draw, so it's an idea time to start growing the pot for the end goal of stacks.

Thanks Dave.

I think I just called the flop bet hoping the other villain might come along behind - as both opps were pretty short stacks compared to mine.

When I got HU I was just trying to get it in anyway I could by the river - maybe not the best line, but then I am not expecting any more queens to show up on the board if opp has one in hand...(not much) - otherwise I think he can have a lot of stuff I am beating the opp is willing to get in with -so if he was happy to continue betting I felt I could call him down and/or shove the river, (when he bet the turn he only had a pot sized bet left).

The 3rd Q was scary but with the board a boat some players are expecting a chop and might shove anything, as well as believing their 77+ pairs are winning - so I felt with so much in the pot I had to call.
