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

      MP: $5.07 (101.4 bb)
      CO: $6.61 (132.2 bb)
      BTN: $12.50 (250 bb)
      SB: $4.78 (95.6 bb)
      BB: $5.60 (112 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $5.22 (104.4 bb)

      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

      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

      I raised to protect my hand from a flush draw and straight draw and also to extract value however how should I react to a raise here? Is this one of the places to make a crying fold or too early to do that and perhaps one more street should be seen? I shoved because a lot of cards could land me in trouble on the turn so I thought I might be ahead and should perhaps shove.

      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)
