Default My best QQ hand. . .ever

Live foxwoods Christmas day 20/40 full ring.

Excellent table here's the makeup
SOFT
especailly mp1 who's stats (obviously no pt but this is a guestimate) are 95/0/.01 wtd 80% so basically this guy has stopped any sort of fancy maneuvers and we are playing best hand poker. Still, he calls river bets with A high and even Q high just to look you up. Amazing.

Mp1 limps, mp2 (an overly aggressive guy that tries to isolate mp1 but never works) Raises, Co (unknown) 3-bets, Button (a dumb dumb way too stupid aggressive guy) Caps it. (he's done this with 99, 10 10 and 45s "lets build a big pot mentality"

Hero is sb with QQ and calls the cap

4 way

366 flop rainbow

Hero checks
mp1 checks
mp2 checks
button bets

Hero calls (c'raising here would not limit the field and I would often get three bet by hands better than me and even air, I would not knoww where I stand)

Mp1 calls
mp2 folds

3 players

Turn K
Hero checks
mp1 checks
button bbets

Hero Raises
Mp1 calls 2 cold
button calls

River 2
Hero bets
mp1 calls
mp2 calls.

So you raise the turn when an overcard hits but dont jam the flop? Calling the flop doesnt limit the field either, make them pay to chase their garbage. Jam that flop and lead the turn. No reason to slow a vulnerable hand like queens.

Just because you are playing 20/40 doesnt mean you need to get fancy. Most live 20/40 players are like your average 6/12 player(they just have more money to burn).

If this was your best QQ hand ever, you need to play some more poker

You've got way too much value to let a cheap card go. You won't eliminate people from the pot but unless they have exactly AK calling your raise is a big mistake as they are drawing to 3 outs or less. Don't worry too much about where you stand here b/c your not getting rid of your hand regardless of the flop action, the pot is just way too big. This isn't the time or place to try to save a bet or 2 by making a big fold.

By your description of these people you may have the best hand and if button 3 bets you, capping the flop for value isn't out of the question given your read.

I'd prolly check the river and hope aggro button bets b/c you have to call a raise here and I'd rather not have to pay 2 bets on this river. Given your desription of button, I'd say he bets this river 100% of the time regardless of his hand.
