Hi dduvshani!

Is this a standard freeroll or a league game? The reason that I ask is that the way that I need to play the hand is different based on this information, as they have different strategies.

I'll assume it's a standard freeroll....

With QQ, I'm going to make a standard opening raise, which for this blind level is to 2.5BB+1BB for each limper (1k chips).

I get three rainbow unders on a 4-way flop and the first opp shoves. With an overpair to the board, I need to try and isolate this opp, as QQ plays much better in a heads-up situation, compared to a multi-way pot. A standard raise sizing is to between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise. This raise will be to more than 1/3 of my remaining chips, meaning that I'll be pot-committed and cannot fold later in the hand.. so I will shove the flop.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
