Default Red Kings facing big flop raise. What\'s my play?

five handed, BB has raised his last 4 big blinds and is very loose and aggressive. SB is loose and pretty passive (but I have seen him make two small bluffs). Both have trouble laying down hands to large raises, especially when they have invested money.

.50/1
I have $40, SB has $30, and BB has us way covered with more than $80.

I am UTG and limp with K[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]K[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] expecting a raise (70% of the time). Two fold and SB completes and BB checks. Complete backfire. Flop comes Q [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] T [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] Q [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]. SB bets 6 and I am nearly certain he has no queen based off of a tell I picked up. BB makes a big raise to 25. I am pretty sure he also senses weakness in SB.

Now what?

Is this a live game?

Anyhow, If you are confident in your read of the SB (that he doesn't have a queen), I'd push here. $25 is a big raise from BB. If he had trip Q's, I'd think he'd want a little bit more action (especially if he also read SB as weak.) Also, as nobody raised the hand preflop, he'll expect less resistance to his raise postflop. I push, and expect to win the hand unless outdrawn. (on the plus side, your red kings are clogging up some of the outs that villains likely need if they are drawing)

Fold.
Buy-in full or play NL50 or NL25 whatever you can handle.
Also don't limp-reraise. It's transparent and stupid. Raise preflop.

DJ sensei, do 50c/$1 players really raise a sb bettor with a draw here? Mayeb he thinks sb has a weaker queen and can't lay it down? Hero hasn't shown any strenght preflop so I don't know how much this factors into his decision.

Doesn't matter if he's bluffing or not, you've only put 1BB in so far, it's not worth the risk to find out what he's got. Next time raise it preflop.

how much you have already put in the pot should never be mentioned when deciding about the next move.
