**moved to more appropriate forum**

What type of tourney is this from and what reads did you have on the opps? This can have a bearing on my reply, so please answer.

Hi sunil786!

With QQ on the button, I'm going to make a standard opening raise, which at this blind level is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Due to this, I will raise to 600.

The flop is a very coordinated three under cards and an opp shoves and is called. I either need to shove to try to isolate or fold here and with a premium made pair, I'm going to shove. Yes, the opp could have A2, 67 or a set, but especially in a freeroll, I can get called by many lesser hands.

The key here is the preflop raise, as by making it too small, it prices in marginal hands to try to draw to beat me (which is something I'd like to avoid if at all possible).

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

No. I'll raise to 600 with any hand that I'm going to play there (AA, QQ, 77, 33, AK, JTs, or a bluff). By raising to the same amount with any hand I'll play, the opp will not have a clue whether I have a good hand or not.

To expand on what JWK is saying here,you're standard raise,by what I see you do in the hand shown,is 3x correct?

All he's advocating that you do,and I agree with him 1000%,is that you add an additional 1x for each limper ahead of you. You had 1 here so it's your standard 3x plus 1x for the limper. As for tipping hand strength---the players that DO pay attention,if they see you raise like this with ANY raise that you make and you show both hands like QQ+ down to doing it with combo draws...well that makes it harder for them to range you.

That's the key sunil,if you keep your plays standard to what YOU do at the table and don't deviate and have one amount you raise for big hands and another when you think you're less dominant in the hand then it becomes harder for them to put you on a hand.

Now of course spots come along due to many factors when we will need to change it up,that's fine. And every now and then it's good to change it up just to show that you can and will change gears,this again helps to keep more observant (and thus better...) opponents wrong-footed against us.

But as a rule if you keep what you do with your bet-sizing consistent it will keep opps guessing.
