      would you have put the hand down if you didn't hit the queen on the turn?

      Thank you<

      Sometimes u do not play the standard way just because of 2 reasons:

      1. U have to vary your game, otherwise u re like an open book for everyone.
      2. Because u know something about your opponent.

      The reason i played like that is because of reason number 2. My opponnent was loose agressive pre-flop
      and ABC player postflop. He is really scared player postflop an missed a lot of value bets in some previous hands.
      Thats why i lead out on the flop, only $25 to know if my QQ are good. By any raise or call I get rid of my QQ.
      Its not the board to check call with QQ, u can expect a lot of bad cards on turn and then u have to guess: does he has a draw or
      are my QQ good? So I could lose more than $25.

      Actually I think if played bad well then he did play even worse. U do not 4bet with AKof in cash games, expecially
      when u are playing deep stack poker. And then u do not just call that flop (with a lot of straight and flush possibilities).

      So now u know my story, i really want to know what do you think of that!
