      CO-1 ($2.05)
      CO ($6.10)

      Preflop: Hero is in MP with Q :heart: Q :spade:

      I folded this hand since my stack was >25BB.
      Was the hand playable from middle position, since usually if we want to be rather cautious we only play AA,KK with stacks >25BB ???

      it depends on how good you think you can play postflop... personally i would never fold QQ first in from mp with less than 40bb :)

      but if you don´t want to risk your double stack it´s fine... no need to take any risks at nl10

      Well, your risk tolerance and postflop skills matter a lot here. I would play QQ from any position with any stack, of course) But take your time if you feel uncomfortable with that at the moment...
