      Sickening hand.

      PokerStars - $0.10 NL ZOOM - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $9.90
      SB: $20.43
      BB: $9.98
      Hero (UTG): $30.79
      UTG+1: $32.67
      UTG+2: $24.25
      MP: $3.87
      MP+1: $20.19
      CO: $4.85

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has Q:spade: Q:diamond:

      Hero raises to $0.35, UTG+1 calls $0.35, fold, fold, fold, CO raises to $1.40, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $1.05, UTG+1 calls $1.05

      I figured to call and play my QQ here.

      Flop: ($4.35, 3 players) 8:diamond: 2:spade: Q:club:
      Hero checks, UTG+1 checks, CO bets $3.45 and is all-in, Hero calls $3.45, fold

      I just check to maybe signal to the guy deep stacked that I am weak and I am fairly certain the midstack will shove if he doesn't bet anyways. I just call to try and induce the deep stack to come along as well.

      Turn: ($11.25, 2 players) K:diamond:

      River: ($11.25, 2 players) 4:spade:

      Hero shows Q:spade: Q:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Queens) (Pre 18%, Flop 91%, Turn 2%)
      CO shows K:heart: K:spade: (Three of a Kind, Kings) (Pre 82%, Flop 9%, Turn 98%)
      CO wins $10.74

      Pretty nasty, once they flipped KK I had a feeling I was gonna lose =P

      Hello FlashDavin,

      Against CO we could as well just get it in there but overall ain't wrong to play this way either cause we are deep with UTG1. If you want to drag him into the pot it's fine.

      Best Regards.
