      PokerStars - $0.05 NL (9 max) - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3:

      CO: $4.00
      BTN: $2.00
      SB: $1.95
      BB: $3.85
      UTG: $5.00
      UTG+1: $9.85
      MP: $2.00
      Hero (MP+1): $3.97
      LP: $5.05

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has Qh Qd

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.15, fold, CO calls $0.15, fold, SB raises to $0.25, BB calls $0.20, Hero raises to $1.50, fold, SB raises to $1.95 and is all-in, BB calls $1.70, Hero calls $0.45

      Flop: ($6.00, 3 players) 6d 8c Ac
      BB checks, Hero bets $2.02 and is all-in, BB calls $1.90 and is all-in

      Turn: ($9.80, 3 players) 7h

      River: ($9.80, 3 players) 9h

      BB shows 5h 7d (Straight, Nine High) (Pre 16%, Flop 34%, Turn 31%)
      Hero shows Qh Qd (One Pair, Queens) (Pre 66%, Flop 54%, Turn 64%)
      SB shows Jc Jh (One Pair, Jacks) (Pre 18%, Flop 12%, Turn 5%)
      BB wins $9.39

      I knew i was ahead the whole way, i just don't understand how to play these maniacs who will call preflop raises with offsuit gaped conectors.

      I run into this sort of stuff every single day, it makes me think, is playing MICRO LIMITS profitable?

      Hello haines21,

      By the way you should be able to copy the hand correctly with suits and stuff from PT. :)

      Against those maniacs and even not full stacks I'd be happy to go broke with my QQ and most likely I would have played the same way. Nice hand!

      Only that I would raise preflop bigger to $0,20 and then when 4bet I would ship it directly.

      Best Regards.
