      Hello,

      well, whenever I get QQ, I face heavy preflop action. This time I folded, despite of the good odds, because I didn't want to play OOP without initiative against 2 villains and I didn't want to push either after so much action.....it seams, every single time when I get into this situation, I'm going against KK or AA.

      Opponents basically unknown, didn't seem to be maniacs neither rocks.

      Best wishes and thanks!

      Hey!
      In Preflop you got good odds even for setmining (against two opponents these are very good odds), so call in Preflop to hit the set, especially 'cause you are closing the action in Preflop. If you don't hit the set, you can just give up.
