      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, Q.
      UTG2 calls $0.02, 2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.08, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.07, BB folds, UTG2 raises to $0.14, MP3 calls $0.06, Hero calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.44) J, 2, 8 (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $0.06, MP3 calls $0.06, Hero raises to $0.51, UTG2 calls $0.45, MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($1.52) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $0.27, Hero calls $0.27.

      River: ($2.06) 3 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $2.06.

      Was it fine to cold call pre? I didn't 3bet because the open raiser was quite a loose aggressive player and I didn't want to play post flop out of position with him for a big pot. Should I just be trying to go all in pre with him? His vpip/pfr was something like 29/28

      UTG2 was much tighter so I got a little worried when he 3bet.

      I didn't bet the turn because UTG2 had only 0.27 so I thought I could get a weaker hand to shove here. If he checked, I would bet river.

      If the turn was not a queen, my plan was to play chk/call or chk/fold depending on bet size and board

      Also, I didn't plan to chk/raise flop because I was worried of UTG2, but when he bet so little I decided to raise because I think my qq is still very vulnerable to overs against 2 players. Was this ok?

      Hello thebaptist333,

      Preflop: 3bet it preflop for value and most likely I would even play for the stacks. As we continue I don't really like the call-down, rather just get it in. :)

      As played
      Postflop: I would most likely just lead out and protect my hand here rather than Check it.

      Best Regards.
