If this doesn't tilt you I dunno what will.

And if you're gonna suggest I should've shoved pre, save it.
I have lost too many AA/KK/QQ/JJ in the last few days to even think of QQ as a premium hand.

This isn't a bad beat.

You got it in with 1% equity or thereabouts and lost. As for the hand itself, personally I hate the min-raise to 200, and his subsequent click back, it is a Hubble freeroll though. It's poker but a format that isn't conducive to good poker, at least not early on.

Take a break.

Seriously.

When you start thinking QQ is not a premium hand, when it's ahead of 99% of hand combinations pre-flop, then results-oriented thinking is clouding your judgement. Variance can do strange things to a player's mind. If it can make you lose perspective about something as simple as pre-flop hand strength, you need to take a break. QQ is a monster. Play it like one.

I agree. This is NOT a bad beat... but it is bet very poorly.

With QQ, I get 2 limps, then a raise to 110 in front of me. I need to make a standard 3-bet, which is to between 3X the opp's bet (330) to a pot-sized raise if it's higher (it's not in this case as it would be to 290. I cannot raise to less than 330, especially in a multi-way pot.

Due to raising too small, the opp with KJ only has to put 180 into a pot that will be 740 (24.3%). The question then is.. is their hand worth this much? If I go to pokerstove and since no reads were listed, I use a default of a 20% range for two opps... I get that KJo has 28.1% equity.

Therefore, the opp DOES have the odds to bet 290 here and should be in the hand due to the abnormally small raise.

When the opp makes the raise to 290, with QQ, I now need to re-raise them again and since betting 3X their bet now pot-commits me.. I need to shove.

The hand was lost due to too small of bets that gave the opp the correct odds to be in the hand.... and because of it.. it's my own fault that I lose the hand.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
