View Full Version : QQ in BB first hand

30 Limit Sit N Go on Party.

QQ in the BB, first hand.

5 players limp. SB completes the 2/3 blind.

I raise, figuring that I want people to go the distance when I flop an overpair or a set. I wonder if this is a check, though. Thoughts?

LP reraises. Now I figure I've got to cap. Everyone plays along.

Flop comes A /images/graemlins/diamond.gif9 /images/graemlins/diamond.gif 4 /images/graemlins/club.gif. I have no diamonds. I make a halfhearted bet out. One player folds. At this point, I figure I'm dead in the water, and there's no way I'm winning the pot without turning a Q.

I check the turn, which is 8 /images/graemlins/spade.gif. EP bets. Everyone calls. I fold. Thoughts?

Anyway, river is a rag, EP checks, LP preflop reraiser bets, EP calls. LP reraiser has JJ, it's good.


Who folds the turn? Who checks out of the blind before the flop?

Nobody raised you on the flop. You need to bet out on the turn.

Certainly raise with QQ in the blinds.

I might bet the turn but with atleast 4 others in the pot I would figure I am looking to hit a 2 outer. I can't argue the fold. Best hand doesn't have to win everytime!

I would have bet out on the turn to see where I stood with my hand. You can always fold in the face of a reraise if you think someone has the ace. Just my thoughts on the particular hand.
