      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $3.05
      UTG1:
      $5.00
      UTG2:
      $2.71
      MP1:
      $0.96
      MP2:
      $10.53
      MP3:
      $5.00
      CO:
      $1.94
      BU (Hero):
      $2.00
      SB:
      $11.48


      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, Q.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.15, 3 folds, CO calls $0.15, Hero raises to $0.67, SB calls $0.65, BB raises to $3.05, 2 folds, Hero calls $1.33(All-In), SB folds.

      Flop: ($6.02) K, 5, 8 (2 players)


      Turn: ($6.02) 8 (2 players)


      River: ($6.02) 9 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $6.02.

      Ok so UTG+1 raised and got called. QQ is clearly a 3bet/shove even against the ep raiser.

      Now SB calls and BB 4bet ships!. What to do. If the first raiser shiped then we would have to call so I called. I was thinking that we cannot say that this was a "if there was more than one raise before you" situtation because WE ARE THE SECOND RAISER.

      Hey mineriva,

      Nice hand once again. The 3-betting chart states you should reraise QQ+ against early position openraiser and go all-in if you are raised after that where it doesn't matter who makes the raises after you, the openraiser or players who are left to act behind you.

      Best regards,
