      Hello Ramadas!

      Welcome to the PokerStrategy Hand Evaluations forum. As I assume this is your first post I would like to highlight some guidelines to make hand evaluations an essential part of your poker career & development:
      I refer back to this link:

      • It is better to post some explanations & thoughts about the hand yourself along with posting the hand, so i can understand what you are thinking and can help you accordingly

      • Converting the hand to make it look prettier & more structured is also a big pre, now we are dealing with a ''raw'' hand history which looks unappealing, chaotic.

      Have a look at the other hand evaluation threads from other users and you will see what I mean :)

      Now I converted the hand for you now:

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

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

      Known players:
      MP1 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q, Q.
      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.20, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.14.

      Flop: ($0.43) 6, T, 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.14, MP3 raises to $0.83, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.57.

      According to our Starting Hands Chart, we are ought to Raise QQ preflop. If we get reraised, we are expected to go all-in which you did not do. That's the mistake there because we are often ahead here to make going all-in the best move

      As played you should check/raise or go all-in when he raises all-in because you have an Overpair here with a shallow stack :)

      Best regards,

      Hello Gerv,

      Thanks and sorry for problems!

      Probably if I would go all-in I would get the pot.
