      I was bb and I had qq.The player in mid position pot raised me.The cut-off and the sb called so I just called.The flop was 248 I made a pot bet,the mid position guy made a mini re-raise and I just shoved in.He had AA.Was that an easy fold?

      as always.... it depends. Need more information to make a more accurate decision

      i.e, stack sizes, table image, cash/tourney etc etc

      more info would be great :s_biggrin:

      I'd be raising pre.

      Was this in Cash, SNG or MTT?

      I can move your post into Hand Evaluations to get a coachs view, but it would be far more beneficial if you can post the Hand history here too.

      -In HEM double click on the hand and it will open in replayer.
      -In replayer window on the left side somwhere is the Hand History linkbutton. Click it.
      -In hand history window on top right there is a button "2+2". Click it and it will copy the hand history.
      -Then just paste that here. ;)

      As for the hand;
      Why do you only have 54bb stack?
      You will play the hand out of position 4-way if you call. And you will have no idea on the flop where you stand. I would just raise preflop and with your stack size try to get it all in preflop.

      Oh,that's easy.Because I'm still a fish who doesn't have the habit to re-buy himself.But I'm trying my hardest to improve my game(watching coaching vids,reading articles and now posting hands on the forums).So its just a mistake on my part.

      There is nothing wrong with not buying for the full amount. You just need to to understand that strategy you play changes with your stack size. (SSS, MSS, BSS). and you need to adapt to that. ;)

      Oh yeah,I tend to go for bss because I find it to be the most profitable way to earn money(but what do I know).And while we are it could you guys look at this hand.Did I played it bad:
      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Everest
      Hero ($5.58)
      BB ($6.40)
      UTG ($4.37)
      CO ($10.65)
      BTN ($9.85)

      Dealt to Hero K:heart: A:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, BB calls $0.20

      FLOP ($0.60) Q:diamond: K:diamond: 4:spade:

      Hero bets $0.60, BB calls $0.60

      TURN ($1.80) Q:diamond: K:diamond: 4:spade: 8:spade:

      Hero bets $1.80, BB calls $1.80

      RIVER ($5.40) Q:diamond: K:diamond: 4:spade: 8:spade: 9:heart:

      Hero bets $2.88 (AI), BB calls $2.88

      Hero shows K:heart: A:heart:
      (Pre 78%, Flop 88.2%, Turn 93.2%)

      BB shows 9:spade: K:club:
      (Pre 22%, Flop 11.8%, Turn 6.8%)

      BB wins $10.42

      I was watching the coaching tree from deucescrack and one of the guys said something that managed to stuck on my head."VALUE BET,VALUE BET,VALUE BET."Of course I know that it all depends on the situation but I thought that this time was good for some value betting.
      Edit:I had only 5 bucks because these are my last money from the 50$ quiz I made.haha
      I was doing fine but I lost 2 all-ins with my AA preflop and 1 time KK preflop.meh

      Hello djenkov,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Also please post 1 hand per thread, just open a new thread if you want any new hands to be evaluated. :)

      About QQ hand:
      3bet it preflop and play for the stacks. Plus of course you should be playing 100BB game if you following the BSS chart!

      Best Regards.
