      Ok in this hand , i call with QQ coz it has such great equity , rather than 3 bet corect.? ( like i didnt wanna 3 bet them and they fold )
      When UTG2 raises me after the flop i was gonna just shove , as the board was prety wet , i decided to call , not sure if i played this ok , i felt a wee bit lucky. i think the 5diamond was a good hand to cary on betting tho on river as i think they may have nut flush draw.

      Edit . Now im thinking i should have 3 bet like i normally would of , im just trying different things with 3beting light with weaker hands and i thought here i could try a call for value ,btu im geting confused again , i really need to know more about 3 bet calling ranges.

      Ask yourself these questions:
      What are you going to do with QQ when you call pre and see:
      1. Axx board?
      2. Kxx board?
      3. 8:h9:s6 board?
      4. J:dT:d4 board?

      Generally without having a plan on the F+T+River, calling preflop is very bad and not recommended.

      I would certainly 3bet here preflop for value because people will call with a looser range. If they fold, they had a junk hand anyway
