      Hey guys,

      First and foremost I have just started playing NL 6max cash so I apologise for my very basic questions here

      As I've only played around 500 hands - stats are non-existant. I am one tabling for the moment and not using a HUD.

      PokerStars Zoom No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02 BB (6 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

      Button ($0.97)
      SB ($9.23)
      BB ($4.14)
      HollyMichelle (UTG) ($2)
      MP ($0.54)
      CO ($2.43)

      Preflop: HollyMichelle is UTG with Q, Q
      HollyMichelle bets $0.06, MP calls $0.06, CO calls $0.06, 2 folds, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.25) 4, 8, 6 (4 players)
      BB bets $0.12, HollyMichelle raises to $0.35, 1 fold, CO calls $0.35, 1 fold

      Turn: ($1.07) 10 (2 players)
      HollyMichelle bets $1.59 (All-In), CO calls $1.59

      River: ($4.25) J (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $4.25 | Rake: $0.15

      Results below:

      HollyMichelle had Q, Q (flush, Queen high).
      CO had A, 8 (flush, Ace high).
      Outcome: CO won $4.10

      Your thoughts on my play in this hand, please? Bet sizings and turn play in particular :)

      Thanks in advance,

      Flop is overplay. Just call, u arent faring well against any range which stacks off on flop esp in four way pots. You should recognise that qq on this texture is merely a med strength hand and thus we should call to pot control as we xant get too muxh value from worse by raising.

      Hope this helps.
      Bet or raise when strong or bluffing
      Call when med strength
