      $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      MP: $5.07 (101.4 bb) 39/23/1.3/12.5/27/34
      CO: $6.61 (132.2 bb) 22/11/16.0/0.0/22
      BTN: $12.50 (250 bb)
      SB: $4.78 (95.6 bb) 22/11/0.4/0.0/13/46
      BB: $5.60 (112 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $5.22 (104.4 bb) 27/24/5.0/10.5/33/46

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with Q Q
      Hero raises to $0.20, MP calls $0.20, CO calls $0.20, BTN folds, SB calls $0.18, BB folds

      Standard raise and 3 people called, wow, family pot.

      Flop: ($0.85) K Q J (4 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.81, MP raises to $1.62, 2 folds, Hero raises to $5.02 and is all-in, MP calls $3.25 and is all-in

      Now I need some major protection here on this board with 4 opponents, one of them seems interested and he could have a straight draw or a flush draw or a made straight or two pair or even a set of JJ. I thought that I had to have decent equity in this hand with so many draws he could be holding anything and I decided to shove.

      What range would you have put him on during this hand and what would you do here? I've just started out with Shorthanded and would want to know what kind of range I should put someone on here in this situation as people play looser in shorthanded and tighter in full ring.


      Turn: ($10.59) 6 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($10.59) 8 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Results: $10.59 pot ($0.44 rake)
      Final Board: K Q J 6 8
      MP showed 4 A and won $10.15 ($5.08 net)
      CO mucked and lost (-$0.20 net)
      SB mucked and lost (-$0.20 net)
      Hero showed Q Q and won $0.00 (-$5.07 net)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      He could have a lot here, starting from just a pair+draw or whatsoever and of course worse sets like JJ and 2pairs made straights. :P Against that kind of range we don't plan to fold our hand here so I am also going broke.

      Best Regards.
