      Found this hand interesting, upon closer inspection I still think I played this hand correctly. The flop was definately scary for QQ, but the fact that the villain limped from middle position but called a hefty raise makes me think he probably has a weak ace or small pocket pair (at the time I put him on a range of 77-TT). The minbet on the flop looks like a blocking bet or a trap, my thinking was blocking bet because of his actions preflop. Seeing the result, I think he should have folded...but of course it never happens like that.

      What do you guys think?

      Calling with rags, min-betting small pockets, betting 1/14th potsize are all signs of chum. No trapping, no blockbetting, simply chum. Chum do not know how to play, you can spot them after only a few hands. Here you played well, I conti-bet QQ KK even with Ace on board, and in this case you could probably fold if he donks the flop and shoves oop.
      good hand... put this chum on a list and mark him as an ace caller.
