      Hero shows three of a kind, queens (Qc Qh)
      BU shows two pairs, aces and queens (Qd Ah)

      Hero wins with three of a kind, queens (Qc Qh)

      Ok, first of all, let me explain why the call instead of the raise.
      I had left all my tables with check/fold pre-selected, cause I didnt have anything. So I ran downstairs to grab me some grapes and came back. When I got here I saw QQ, 7sec to act. BUT, as if Fortune didn't like me at all, my iTunes was changing songs, and that usually freezes my computer for a couple of seconds. So I quickly figured I wouldn't have time to set a proper raise. And therefore I clicked on call, in order not to lose the hand.

      So, that excused. What could I have done? Could I have indeed pushed it?
      Cause here's what I figure. If the positions were inverted, I'd have pushed it, after his raise. So, positions wouldn't matter on the flop, cause I'd be all in already.
      So I thoughtI might as well go for it the way it is

      What do you all reckon?

      Pushing is correct, But after your limp it looks like QQ+ to me..
      Call pre-flop, Check-Shove the turn is also an option.
      But in this spot , you can easy get it in pre-flop, cause he doesn`t lay down many hands anymore..

      *The BU has a very wide range.. Because there is 1 limper ( you look weak) + the SB and the BB = 2.5 BB in the pot.. he could easaly take a shot at it with TJ 9T JQ QK QJ AQ , many SC some 1-gappers and any PP..

      You really are a big favorite :)

      *Grabbing some food , drink , or pissing is very hard playing multi-tables..
      A notebook is the key.. you can take it anywhere you want.. :P

      actually happened to me once, i ended minraising my AKs thankfully someone reraised me so i could go all in.

      after you accidentally limp you have to go all in, you want to go all in preflop with queens , he has to call since the move looks fishy. maybe later he will call you when you raise AA because he thinks of you as an slowplayer :P
