      Both villains unknown, UTG 15/15/13hands, BU 22/22 30hands

      I think not 3betting UTG since we are deep is a mistake, I just didn't realise we were deep until after he called the 3bet.
      I'm actually not sure about 3betting QQ vs unknown UTG vs MP in general.

      Plan was to possibly backraise/possibly shove over a squeeze, but seeing as we were deep I decided against it.

      Think donking flop could be good here, BU is probably checking back worse most of the time so I have some value.

      Turn/river I just call because of the small sizings, bigger & I probably fold.
      Thanks!


      UTG: $62.19 (248.8 bb)
      Hero (MP): $38.89 (155.6 bb)
      CO: $25.64 (102.6 bb)
      BTN: $27.40 (109.6 bb)
      SB: $28.93 (115.7 bb)
      BB: $87.51 (350 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with Q Q
      UTG raises to $0.62, Hero calls $0.62, CO folds, BTN raises to $2.75, 2 folds, UTG calls $2.13, Hero calls $2.13

      Flop: ($8.60) T 6 8 (3 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($8.60) 7 (3 players)
      UTG bets $2.50, Hero calls $2.50, BTN folds

      River: ($13.60) 7 (2 players)
      UTG bets $3, Hero calls $3

      Results:
      $19.60 pot ($0.98 rake)
      Final Board: T 6 8 7 7
      UTG showed J J and lost (-$8.25 net)
      Hero showed Q Q and won $18.62 ($10.37 net)

      Hi

      Stsck depth is not so relevant here. Utg is tight and thus we should flat to let others squeeze

      Now we got what we wanted so just backraise over the squeeze. When utg doesnt fourbet ee havr the better hand almodt always vs utg. And theres so much dead money in the pot.

      Hey thanks! so what would your backraise sizing be?

      I wanted to raise fairly big to commit BU, but is smth like $8.50~9 too big?

      Also, If effective stacks were 100bb, would you ever consider just backraise shoving to induce a spazzy call from BU since we look like mid PP a lot?
      He might call with like AJ+

      I would just shove. Raising lafge is the same as shoving if its obvious u are nv folding.

      No pt raising small if u nv habe a backraise small 4b range too.
