      RIVER ($7.06) J:spade: 9:diamond: 2:club: T:club: J:club:

      Hero shows Q:diamond: Q:heart: (Pre 85%, Flop 76.2%, Turn 81.8%)UTG shows T:heart: 8:club: (Pre 15%, Flop 23.8%, Turn 18.2%)Hero wins $6.71

      I call in position with my QQ, the iso raiser is on tighter side and by calling I can ensure I have the looser player in the pot too.

      On the flop I see UTG put a min bet, I think this is most likely some weak blocker bet and he is on a draw, fact that MP is calling here shows to me that he didnt hit the flop either and is ok with seeing the turn card, I raise here for value, expect UTG to continue on with his draws and I hope I will fold out the MP

      Not the best card on the turn, but again UTG makes a weak min bet which I think I am still ahead of, so I put him all in to make him pay up whatever he wants to chase before the river card and possible loss of value if he wont hit

      Hey HrabriLavek,

      Preflop logic makes sense. CO 3bet is usually pretty strong here and QQ is not necessarily going to be a huge favourite. It's good for you to get better direct preflop odds and play against looser UTG.

      Flop raise vs UTG min-bet is good. CO's range is exposed as weak when he calls, usually holds AQ/AK type of hand. Raising to isolate yourself vs UTG is a good option, and you also set up a nice turn shove size.

      T is not a great turn card for you, but it's likely villain is not strong when he min-bets and I think your shove is great.
