      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q, Q.
      MP1 folds, Hero raises to $0.05, 3 folds, SB raises to $0.16, BB folds, Hero raises to $0.74, SB calls $0.58.

      Flop: ($1.5) A, 7, 9 (2 players)

      Turn: ($1.5) 8 (2 players)

      River: ($1.5) 6 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $1.5.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of queens(Q Q).
      SB shows a pair of aces(K A).

      SB wins with a pair of aces(K A).

      people are playing tight. after MP1 folds, there were 6 players left, will anyone consider limping with QQ in this spot?

      Preflop: I don't like opening 2.5bb at NL2. In general from earlier positions you should open 4BB because the game is generally loose and passive and you want to avoid playing multiway pots. Small raises encourages just that. At higher limit games where people are more aggressive with 3-bets, then a 2.5bb open could make more sense.

      Anyway vs a 40bb stack, I think getting it all-in is perfectly fine.

      Nice hand.
