Hi,

Sorry no zoom reads but there are a couple of points in this hand to review. Is it good or bad play...

1) My btn QQ squeeze vs 3 players - bet sizing more or less?
2) The original utg raiser calls and the shorty - isolate a possible side pot?

Seems like a fairly standard hand to me.

The initial 3bet is a little big but I don't mind it. You want to thin the field a little and plenty will call with worse. There's dead money in the pot. Post flop, I am not sure if calling or raising is best, I guess it would depend on what we think EP has. I don't hate the raise.

Not asking for two HA here,

But I see a theme on the same QQ on btn principal.

Now facing utg raise and 3bet, now I flat call QQ, keep wider ranges in! So now on a 3 flush board what do you do when???

UTG shorty jams pot and over called! Again I'm isolating a potential side pot. Is this a good or bad move?

Well 3bet didn't fold so... I'm the muppet!

I actually can't see how calling or shoving will make too much of a difference as I doubt a non made hand will even call here given the action. A hand that would call the 2.46 would probably call the all in too. Only that by calling we could put ourself into a difficult decision on scare cards and over think ourselves. So I prefer putting the rest in as a standard line.
