Sorry guys, I meant to say QQ in the big blind

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, 0.55 Tournament, 200/400 Blinds 50 Ante (8 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com/

UTG (t15,555)
UTG+1 (t21,221)
MP1 (t4,405)
MP2 (t11,525)
CO (t6,189)
Button (t5,005)
SB (t14,994)
Hero (BB) (t5,410)

Hero's M: 5.41

Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, Q
3 folds, MP2 calls t400, CO calls t400, 1 fold, SB calls t200

All three limpers have high VPIP and are extremely passive preflop

Is this a clear and cut all in?

Hi Sle4zy_E!

With 13BB, I get 3 limps in front of me while I'm holding QQ. I need to raise here and since a standard raise (2.5BB+1BB for each limper) definitely pot-commits me (puts at least 1/3 of my chips into the pot), I'm going to shove preflop. Whenever I'm going to make a bet that pot-commits me, I want to shove as I cannot fold if I make the bet.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

One thing that we have to remember... QQ will lose to A7 here about 3 in every 10 times.
