Default QQ - 2 lessons learned

#1 - QQ early SNG (or ring game), I'm gonna start forcing myself to look for excuses to fold them, not the other way around. I'll let the board know how that goes.

#2 - At a $100 buy-in NL B&M ring game, assume LAG or LP, but by all means identify the tighty(s) as quickly as you possibly can.

Mix 1 part #1 and 1 part #2, shake vigorously, and maybe, just maybe wind up your your first QQ fold ever. Thus walking away from a B&M ring game as a winner for the first time, instead of running QQ up against AA for the 99,322nd time. 4 great hands, one truly beautiful bluff worth $150 all by itself. But QQ vs AA undid it all.

Don't cry for me Argentina.

Default Re: QQ - 2 lessons learned

Ok, by "excuses to fold", I guess I mean if my spidey sense is really tingling that I might be in trouble. Honestly I've never folded QQ. But I think of the times I've seriously considered it, I've been right more often than not. Then again that could be selective memory.

In the ring game I opened for $15, the dude (who hadn't played a pot in an hour, not that I really noticed) raised to $40. I pushed for $200. Dumb? As I'm driving home, I just kept thinking I could have gotten away for $15. And remembering Dannenman's little folded up piece of paper quote from the WSOP: "Not calling a big raise is only a small mistake".

Any thoughts/reams greatly appreciated here.

Ok having never folded QQ is a bit extreme I agree.
