Hi CorpoStar!

The league games have a strategy unto themselves, as when playing them, I have one and only 1 goal... to last as long as possible in order to accumulate more and more league points. Also, the later in the month it gets, the more important lasting longer means, as the point penalties for early exits become more dramatic. The end of the month leaderboard $$ is my goal in these.

With QQ in the SB, I get two limps in front of me, then a large overbet (a standard raise for this opp would be to between 3X the previous bet, 12k, and a pot-sized raise, 21.6k).

Unless I have a note on the opp that says that they are a total nit (will only play AA or KK), I'm going to shove here. I have a made hand and will be ahead of the opp's range.

If this was very early in the tourney (in the first few blind levels, especially toward the end of the month), then I'd be more than happy to muck QQ here, as the penalty for an early exit in these games is huge.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
