heey ed, i like hwo you played the hand accept if you have notes on him that he is really really really tight, but thats probably not the case.
his pre flop play i dont like it to much his raise is not bad i gues but when you get 3 bet you just have to ditch 45s. his post flop plya i actually really like. the check shove smells like a draw indeed but he wil fold out so manny better hands. would you see your self calling with a hand like 99 there? so i like your play. like your opponents post flop play

I think You have to 4 bet or fold with the 45s preflop a great hand in a cheap multiway pot, but heads up against the chip leader who is 3 betting out of position.

Hi Ed,

Reads are important here I think villan had been raising aggressively obviously. I don't quite remember if you in particular had been playing back alot.

I think you've played the QQ straight forward and best way possible I think. Definately 3bet for value and also table image to impose yourself a little over the aggressive villan as the big stack.

I think I agree with other posters 45s. I don't think it's a great hand to flat the 3bet here. Implied odds are shrinking in the 3bet pot. It would require alot of fold equity post flop I think to be profitable.

Good win
