      0.02/0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.106 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Q:diamond: , Q:club:
      Hero raises to $0.12, 2 folds, SB calls $0.10, BB raises to $0.48, Hero calls $0.36, SB folds.

      Flop: ($1.08) T:diamond: , 6:club: , 2:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.81, Hero raises to $1.75, BB raises to $6.49 (All-In), Hero??????).

      My standard 3bb raise with QQ. Should I 4-bet the BB here or is the call here ok pre-flop? Also on the flop would just a call be ok or is it a mandatory raise with the 2 diamonds? Also I'm guessing I should raise more here if I'm going to raise, right? It's a standard fold here with the BB's shove considering how much I've invested or not? What do you reckon? Let me know.

      Hello Ghartman,

      Preflop: Not for me on those limits, standard would be 4xBB. :)
      Postflop: If you are not 3betting it preflop then why do you do it on the flop? What worse hands will pay you? How can you even ask what to do after you raise the flop? :D You should already have the answer yourself if you plan to raise there, did you turn your QQ into bluff? Also why so small raise?

      Best Regards.
