      Hey guys,

      Well I have a few question. First of all could you say it was played correctly? Second is it correct to call with QQ such a big raise or I have to 3-bet? When he raised I knew that regarding from what i saw from him that he has probably AA,KK,AK,QQ. JJ he doesnt bet that strong. Second on the flop the action is folded to me and it is a 4-way pot and did made a mistake that I bet there. I personally will be that it is still fine, but i want your opinions. TY

      Hello MoneyGirl2906,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Preflop: Basically just Calling here is definitely fine while the PFR of his is 7 as I understand? You might just isolate yourself against better hands. But of course overall 3betting and considering to go broke on those limits against some opponents it's definitely fine too. :)
      Postflop: Nothing much to do. I would definitely bet as well and I don't think that I'd get away vs almost 50BB stack here. He may easily do that with draws/pair type of hands.

      Best regards.
