      pf: could calling QQ while deep be a mistake ?

      flop: ugly, but at least have to call

      turn: dunt really wanna call turn and call a bet on a blank river,so turn it to a bluff

      would this J be a terrible card to bluff?

      Hello ttjjboy,

      Preflop: Instead just 3bet for value, you make your lines quite weak this way. If you don't even 3bet for value with QQ then what? :P KK+ only and crap range? For him it's anyways going to be difficult to continue unless he has KK+ or is agro. Though he may still Call and pay us and make mistakes.

      As played
      Flop: What's the hope of yours here? Do you plan to continue every turn card or planning to fold when he bets again or what's the plan? What's the plan vs 3barrel?

      As played
      Turn: As long his CB size is kinda weakish I don't mind the raise. If he had Jx I expect him to be betting bigger to protect.

      Best Regards.
