      usually QQ is an easy all-in if someone re-raises me behind, but here the original raiser, after i had reraised him and another player had reraised behind me and another had called that, asked one of the players whether he could fold QQ.

      it seemed like this could be a genuine question, considering the pre-flop play and that he was adressing a specific player, so maybe a friend. If it were a genuine question, then he would have QQ. he folded to a raise on the king high flop, so QQ makes sense.

      so i think i had a good reason to believe that another player had QQ, but should that make me play differently?

      i've copied straight from the hand history so you can see the chat, with the relevant bit in bold:
