      fold QQ preflop after a raise and a reraise

      after the 88 hand you also posted, it seems you do not know the starting hands chart well. Really learn it well!

      I know I shouldn't say this since it's against the basic strategy, but when I played NL10 I added QQ to the "RAISE" range in the SHC chart, because players were reraising so often with crap. This worked for me, but I'm not sure if it will work for other players. I also played this way when I knew there were fish online and not solid players, btw.

      i think that specially with 9 handed NL10, you can go all in against crappy (most) players with QQ.

      we have 27 hands on CO with 4pfr, he is in TT+

      4pfr = TT+, AQs+, AKo
      our equity 52.992%

      mmm i might considfer pushing here

      CO can't be a sss because he has 99 bb .... and by the way without sample size I'm always calling this.

      Just yesterday I played a tournament, and with 4 of us left, a guy reised, another one re-reised the third man folded and I had QQ. I made a mistake and called my all in. What they had was AK and KK, so I got out of the tour.
