1/2NL Am I ever good here?

Longtime lurker. Started playing a lot more recently with a newly opened casino nearby, figured I'd get some feedback on my play.

Hero is mid twenties and probably seems a bit lag as I was involved in quite a few hands up until this point.
Villain 1: 20s reg playing very loose, raising a lot pre.
Villain 2: 40s russian guy, fairly new to table haven't seen him do to much.

$ 1/2 NL (9 handed)

Villain1 UTG ($240)
Villain2 SB ($97)
Hero mp2 ($300) QQ

V1 raises to $10, MP1 calls, Hero raises to $30, V2 calls, V1 calls, MP1 folds

Flop ($94) K65

V2 shoves for $67 all-in, V1 folds, hero?

V2 smooth calls your 3bet... looks like AK/QQ+ to me.

Sigh fold.

More pre.

V2 should be shoving 127 if he started with 157.

What happened to v2's stack? Make it 40 at least pf, It really depends on whether he shoved 67 or 127

Sorry I messed up stack sizes, but it was a shove for 67 more.

Just really depends on the opponent. With no reads I fold, even only needig 30% equity to make the call

Ever good? Sure. He could have the flush draw. Do we have the Qd?

I'm inclined to agree.

It really sounds like pretty tight range flush draws and hands that have you crushed. Against a range of big flush draws and K's you're looking at almost a flip. So it sounds like you're just about flipping against his range here. Some of these monkeys at 1/2 will show up with goofy ass hands like A6 and even without those hands in his range, you're still making a profitable call. Its really hard to tell without being there though. Without many reads on this player, its really difficult to put a range together. Thats my 2 cents based completely on player tendencies at the 1/2 level.

Re: 1/2NL Am I ever good here?

He is new to table so safe to say he has not lost patient yet, Why would he not shove pre flop over you? Indicates he believes its not a flip anymore. If you take in to account he must realize if he is bluffing he has to convince two of you to fold. Only hand he has you may be beat is a big ace flush draw more than likely he has a big K and in worst caunario he has the flush draw too.

I fold to the description of villain given, newer to the table and fairly inactive.

I'd fold. I don't think he's ever bluffing here and has AK with the flat PF.

Re: 1/2NL Am I ever good here?

heīs a russian. i call
seriously, we need to have around 40% against his range, and if his range is anything beside Kx, itīs a call. probably close, but we also get to see how he plays and built up an image of a tight player preflop who canīt let go of his hand postflop which is good if we apply the normal b/fold strategy. i call.

Call, we block some K's. If you lost, shrug. Next hand.
