I went all in because I thought QQ is too strong to fold there. Don't konow if shove is a good move there, the few hands he played he seemed a weaker player to me. How should I play this hand?

Villain 67/44 hands 9

Hey easypoke,

well played, nice hand!

Your Queens are certainly way too strong of a hand to be folding preflop after the action unfolds like this. I would basically discount the strongest hands preflop a lot since people just limped into the pot or called your initial raise. That way when they come back for another raise they will be much more likely to have hands like medium pairs or even complete bluffs against which you should get the money in now since Queens have strong preflop equity but will be tricky to play once you see a flop that may contain an A or K.
