Default Some reasoning.

Flop: Pretty nice flop. I usually bet here. I want to keep the pot small and I'm not really scared of any cards yet. I kind of want to see what oppoisiton is going to do. If it checks to second villain I CR. I also want to see another tame turn card before I put too many chips in. Once V1 bets and V2 calls, I'm narrowing V2 to a draw and V1 to maybe just a continuation bet or a set. Don't know yet. So I call to make sure turn is a dud. I would love to push anyone off a draw, but it's too easy to run into a big hand here. Which is why I limped in the first place. (Note since I didn't raise preflop I don't want to bet out and get raised cause I'll have no clue where I am. Yes, I know this is solved by raising preflop. But I didn't.)

Turn: Best turn I could hit. Checking here is probably an enormous mistake. But my reasoning for checking was that V1 would recognize that either me or V2 was drawing and would bet at this pot to price us out. V2 may or may not come along for the ride and this is where I would CR. Obviously if V1 has nothing to protect I'm screwed.

River: I hate this card obviously. But once it's checked through the turn and river V2 could have a wide range of hands.

Who played this hand wonderfully? Certainly not you. I guess the guy who got to draw to a flush for free played it pretty well though.

This could have just as easily been a bad beat post.

Frankly, I think this hand was played very poorly. I have no problem limping with QQ. I do like to raise however, because normally there are enough people willing to pay 3x or 4x pf.

That said, you need to raise flop. You need to bet turn. So many hands pay you off on turn that it's almost a crime not to get their money. River is fine, but the turn is what irks me. You need to bet turn. Draws call you, etc. If you can get more money in on the turn, you can have them committed to allin on the riv.
