      Hero mucked Q Q and won $3.38 ($1.58 net)
      MP1 showed A A and lost (-$1.80 net)


      What I want to know is, did I do ok preflop?
      Am I to aggressive on the flop, atleast it thought it might have been pushing it? I think my first idea was to protect against a flush, but not sure if thats even needed.

      MP1 stats was 16/13/4,0/0,0 (46 hands)

      And yes also to try HM2 out.
      Is there a way to make it show stats, now we are on it?

      Thank you :)

      pre i either just call the first raise or 3bet/shove there, calling 4bet out of position sucks

      on flop no need to bet that big, half his stack is enough to get him commited
      maybe check/shove would be an alternative but he may just check behind draw (like A:dK)

      Hello Resilence,

      Is there a way to make it show stats, now we are on it?

      Unfortunately nope, you could make screens like some players do and post it into some image upload site and show it here. For example this hand and see how this guy posts: link.

      Preflop: About the hand if you go for 3bet-value prefop then it means also you have to go broke not Call his 4bet and play like that. AK type of hands wont pay you postflop. Rather get it in preflop!

      As played
      Postflop: Why do you donk? You ain't even letting him continue with weaker hands. Don't like it at all.

      Best Regards.

      I'm finding it a little hard to understand TBH :)
      Are you saying after his reraise that I should throw my QQ away?
      As for when I look at the chart it tells me to raise to a raise, so i'm guessing thats ok?

      I agree on the flop that was tottaly insane, but seems to me that your telling me to fold a rather strong hand?
      Maybe I missunderstood, or are you telling me it's better to call his 3x bet with pair of queens?

      Beginning to think all my winning hands are pure luck related >_<

      Hope you don't bang your head on the counter, in frustration about the noob here :P

      No, when veriz says

      it means also you have to go broke not Call his 4bet


      he means you need to 5bet shove with it preflop, as opposed to calling 4 bet OOP.

      I think at micro stakes, you should be happy to get it in preflop with QQ against anyone, as so many players overplay 99-JJ & AX-AQ preflop

      Guess, got your answer already, thanks Shyko.

      About the flop you should let him CB with all his hands and maybe even AK type of holdings. :)
