3 part preflop quiz

Here's the situation (9-handed):

Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with two cards.
UTG calls, Hero calls, MP1 calls, <font color="#CC3333">MP2 raises</font>, <font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, Button calls, SB folds, <font color="#CC3333">BB 3-bets</font>, UTG calls, Hero ?

Assume opponents with reasonable raising and 3-betting standards. Original raiser will only cap with AA, KK and AKs. What do you do if you hold:

a) QJs?
b) A5s?
c) 55?

Re: 3 part preflop quiz

If our opponents have reasonable standards and the game's this aggressive why are we playing A5s and 55 from EP to begin with?

QJs is an easy call. Not sure about the other two. The pot's sure to be 5 or 6 handed and we're getting pretty good odds.

I call with all 3.

Aggh, I was too lazy for the math. I guess you're getting more than enough odds (9:1 assuming everyone else calls?) on your money to catch a set of 5's, much less your implied odds.

Re: 3 part preflop quiz

I fold hands B and C preflop.

With QJs it looks like it's going to be multiway, and the cards that make someone else top pair could give me a big draw. I call.

Re: 3 part preflop quiz

Two are fairly easy calls IMHO, but I'm not sure about A5s.

Re: 3 part preflop quiz

I think QJs and 55 are easy calls. A5s is closer. I'd want to be pretty sure that everyone else in the hand was along for the ride before I pushed the call button.
