QQ in BB vs Cutoff Limp Reraise.

$2/$5 - Effective Stacks are $420

Hero is BB with QQ.
Folds to Hijack who limps.
Cutoff Limps.
Button Makes it $25
Small Blind Calls $25
Hero calls $25
Hijack calls $25
Cutoff makes it $110
Button and Small Blind fold.

Reads:

Button was playing super tight/nitty. I saw him play probably 4 hands in a matter of 2 hours. He raised each one and either took it down with a flop cbet or check folded.

No reads on small blind.

Hijack was terrible. She would call down with any part of the board. On one hand I saw her check call big bets which ultimately put her all in on the river on a 9TJxx board. She lost to KQ, and said "ow wow I didn't even know a straight was possible I had KK"

Cutoff was weird. I saw him cold call any raise for $20-$25. When I first sat down, he had around $100 in his stack. I pick up Kd7d in the cutoff, folds to me I make it $15. Small blind calls, and he calls out of BB. Flop is 3h3d7h. He check calls $25. Turn is offsuit 2 and he ships his last $60. I call and he shows me AA.

When button opened, I was debating between three betting and just calling. I put button on a tight range that includes PP, AK, AQ, AJ, AT. I would expect him to fold everything but JJ+, AK. If I three bet I also lose Hijack and Cutoff who would have no problem calling $25 with 100% of their range but would fold to a big three bet.

Thoughts on just callign the $25 vs three betting?
What is our play now that cutoff limp reraises?

Thanks.

Re: QQ in BB vs Cutoff Limp Reraise.

Given all of the dead money in the pot and effective stacks are only 84BB I'm going with the hand and raising all-in in here. Cutoff may occasionally be trapping with KK+ here, but I think they call also have AK sometimes AQ and also be trying to squeeze with a hand like 88-TT to pick up all the money in the pot. Another added benefit here is that from the cutoff's perspective you are very unlikely to have a hand as strong as QQ here given you only called PF after the button raise/SB call and may be willing to call the shove somewhat loosely after already committing $110 as a result. Unlucky if he showed up with KK/AA here but in the long-run shipping is the right play here.

I hate the over call because you set yourself up to see a 5 way flop with QQ. Cutoff did you a HUGE favour. Now GII.

If you three bet out of the BB are you calling a shove from either the Cutoff or Button?

If I'm 3 betting to 100-120, then I'm really not deep enough to fold to a jam, so yes.

Re: QQ in BB vs Cutoff Limp Reraise.

I prefer a 3bet the first opportunity.... I don't want to play QQ OOP multiway.... I'd prefer just taking it down if that's what happens. As played, the cutoff 3 bet just looks fishy to me. I could see either calling - trying to draw in hijack - whose range we beat... or raising all-in. I think I prefer the call. And I'm leading non A/K OTF

Can't tell without more hands, but it kind of feels like CO is not the sort to play AK this way.
