      Do go broke on NL2 with QQ against 2 50BB stacks? And in this situation there are two of them, but what if there is only one?

      Hello p0rkus,

      No way I am going to fold such a hand in NL2 with QQ, raise it preflop and try to go broke.

      Best regards.

      What is your usuall policy with QQ on NL2, I find it hard because I have ingrained the idea that I will play strict SHC for now, and so I usualyy fold QQ to a >min-raise on NL2. But I would like to know how I can adapt.

      QQ vs 100 BB who re-raised - how do you play?
      QQ vs 55 -80BB stack re-raising - how do you play?
      QQ vs <55 - Ok now I understand :)
      QQ vs XBB with reads - obvious :)

      Unless the opponent is very tight we can fold if we get 3bet but usually since it's NL2 and people tend to go broke there with a lot wider than higher limits I don't mind going broke.

      QQ vs 55 -80BB stack re-raising - how do you play?
      It's almost the same as <55 since people with such stack don't play good and they tend also to go broke with a lot weaker hands, unless we are against a nit.

      QQ vs <55 - Ok now I understand :)
      Good job! :)

      QQ vs XBB with reads - obvious :)
      Ship it. :f_cool:
