Sorry if i posted it wrong but i simply copy pasted it. Not sure if there is a better way. I would be in seat 6. Im kicking myself for not calling just wanted to know if i made the correct decision and feedback.

for me its ok to fold here and play safe. most likely if you call you can expect it to be 4 handed all in of which at best there will be an under pair and the other 2 hands are most likely going to have some combination of akj so probably 3 of the 8 over cards. of which you are about 40% to win the pot

but if there is a KK or AA you drop to between 15/20% so there can be cases made for calling due to the 40% if not over pair and still being only 5-10% behind pot odds to over pair but i would rather fold here and keep my very playable stack at low blinds and find better spots to win my chips after all you cant win a tournament at 25/50 blinds but you can lose one.

Mega strong plays oop here by the others. I would say that the vast majority of times in this situation the very best you could hope for is a flip. Also, if you did find the call it is a distinct possibility it may become 4 handed as villain 7 would be getting some pretty sick odds if he had a viable hand. Decent fold.

Hi Climaxd!

With QQ, when it folds to me, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper, to raise to 150.

I then get a 3-bet, a shove and another shove in front of me.

Reads here would help, but I'm going to fold here the overwhelming majority of the time (unless all 3 are total maniacs and even then, it's basically a coin-flip).

I go to pokerstove and see how my hand will play and since each player that calls should have a tighter range, I'll use 15%, 10% and 5% for the opps and when I do so.. my QQ is only has 36% equity. This means that I'm basically going to lose 2 of every 3 times that I'd call here.

With this being the case, I'm mucking and looking for a better situation.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
