      Exactly. And whenever you want to raise or re-raise on flop, don't min-raise, bet aggressively, 3x villain's bet or pot-size if it is a freeplay and you are first to act. But in this case, fold, your bankrol will be grateful.

      Edit: By the way, make a note when you find players limping with monsters, so you are aware next time.

      I wouldn't bother in freeplays without Q+ kicker beside top pair, so fold flop.

      As played, make sure you make a note that UTG limps QQ from early.

      Hi Tim,

      minReRaises are meant for Fishes ; you are not a fish so stop doing it because you basically let them call with gutshot draws if you minRaise or MinReRaise them!

      Only continue with TopPair, J+ Kicker so save your chips.

      Best regards,
      Gerv
