      haven't played this in a while, so i'm a bit rusty. i'm guessing it would be much wiser to call the flop then shove like i did? OR could i have played it diffrent PF?

      I think either way it's fine, prefer shoving over calling though, if the guy is competent I probs call, although vs this guy shoving is absolutely optimal.

      --EDIT Apologies if shoving pre is an option, then it's optimal, but if you're forced to call pre flop due to the cold call then as played it's fine.

      I would shove pre-flop because donkey MP will probably call with worse after committing 25BBs.

      That said I'm a 6-max player so it might be terribad to stack off with QQ at full ring.

      Hello tofu22,

      Rather don't flat it preflop. Most likely I'd just ship it. With hands like KK/AA we could consider flatting preflop but not QQ which is still pretty vulnerable.

      Best Regards.
