Easy poooooosh for me. Here's to hoping the SB is making a move. Gotta think QQ is good there. And if not, I'll just boot up another one, but it's a push here for me every time.

I'm dying to hear from the elite posters in this forum on this situation. Out of position facing a large raise and 2 to act behind holding QQ, great example to discuss.

first hand of a party super you'd have to tie my hands behind my back to keep me from pushing, and then id probably push with my nose.

Raising to 60 is fine lin level 1 of the Super, my standard raise in level 1 is to 55.

I really can't see AA being played like that.

Most often I see AK or JJ/TT being played like that.

I fear KK, but just a little.

Given I'm putting the sb on that range of AK/JJ/TT with a smidge of KK, my chips beat his to the pot.

Regards,
Woodguy

I agree we're all at different skill levels and some are obv better than others... but this term sucks and it's almost a put down to other posters.

raise seems fine to me. I bump it anywhere from 50-60. I cant see folding QQ this early w/out a read. I push to get heads up with the sb and expect to see AQ-AK,TT-KK and maybe AA.

This is a tough one. I don't think I'd be so quick to rule out AA or KK. Think about your reraise here if you held AA.
