      - I guess I should have raised preflop?
      - As played maybe shove on the flop, or did I play right?

      1. dont call preflop, either reraise or fold. With 2 opponents reraising you can fold QQ, although with regular stack (20bb) you would have had to shove after 1st raise.

      2. preflop raise QQ with one raiser in front, no matter how many bb you have at the table. Scary flop, I would shove it to show him you mean business and push him off any draws

      1. I agree with delete461. If you play, play it aggressively. You will lose more money in long run by playing passively with big stacks. QQ is a very strong hand and you shouldn't fear risking your double stack with it.

      2. Once again, raise pre-flop and push on flop.

      Best regards!

      1st Hand: Reraise preflop to 1,20 and go all-in if anyone raises behind...

      2nd: Raise to 0,90 preflop...
      as played, i like ur raise size in this flop... because if u bet higher u would have to shove... and wont get value from worst hands,
      Turn: its a really scare card... but i would shove here (dont know if its the correct play)

      QQ = 3bet preflop, no matter which stacksize you have
