2/5 QQ in small blind

Hero is sitting at $1900. V 1 has $1200 and V 2 is around $380.

Hero doubled up V1 about an hour earlier when he raised to $15 on the button with A8s and called the Villians 3 bet out of the BB to 40$ V1 had $450 to start the hand and Hero decided to turn a pair of 8's into a bluff on the turn and Villian snap called him with pocket K's. Easily one of my worse decisions on the night, I leveled myself on that hand.

V2 has bought in for the minimum a couple times and hates folding preflop. Not a very good player.

V1 is UTG and makes it $20 to go. Folds to V2 on the button who calls. HERO wakes up to QsQc and makes it $65 to go. Both players call. Pot $195.

Flop Qd 10d 4h.

Hero leads for $135, V1 raises to $300, V2 puts in his remaining $320.

Hero?

Re: 2/5 QQ in small blind

I don't really understand what you mean when you say "villain wakes up to QQ and makes it $65 to go." I'm just gonna assume that villain is actually hero.

Anyways, assuming villain is in fact hero, I like the strong lead out a lot. You have the best possible hand on the flop and the board is very draw heavy. Especially out of position, I'm shipping it on the flop with the way the action went.

Bigger pre. Now jam. You have an image of overplaying pairs to V1, and basically no one has a a raise/fold range on a wet board anyway.

Does it matter if we don't think V1 is the type of player to go crazy with combo draws. Would a shove lose value from hands like KK and AA (Although they most likely 4 bet pre)

Re: 2/5 QQ in small blind

(I assume Hero woke up with QQ?) Just shove. V1 only has <$900 left and shoving looks as if you are trying to protect AA or KK. We don't want V1 to see another card for less than his stack.

Re: 2/5 QQ in small blind

Your 3! is way too small pre. $80-100 and I’m leaning to the heavy side.

Just rip it in now or click it back to $500. Don’t call though.

Re: 2/5 QQ in small blind

Just shove.

Villain's telling us he likes his hand now. And its hard to believe he can't have draws in his range which are probably already priced in.

If we call the pot is going to be as big as our stack and we can't risk a bad card coming off or villain checking back the turn and hitting a straight or flush on the river.

Re: 2/5 QQ in small blind

Hero shoves remaining stack.

V1 tanks for 2-3 minutes about how there is one hand that beats him and he thinks I have it.

He ends up calling with 1010.

V2 has Q9HH (Flush draw)

Board bricks out and Hero scoops a nice pot.

I was just curious if anyone thought there was any merit to calling to keep KK and AA in the hand. Also if he actually folds 1010 there I would of been sick.

Thanks for the input everyone.

Re: 2/5 QQ in small blind

No merit to calling. The pots 600 coming back to you V started with 1200. I don't see villains raise folding here like ever in 1/2-2/5. You have the nuts pots big already a jam is giving him a little better than 2:1, don't over think this just rip it in 100% of the time.
