      I agree with Gredal. Plus, by only calling his PF raise, you show weakness. So, I don't think your flop bet makes sense. The flop hasn't improved your hand and you're no longer pre-flop aggressor, so a contibet is unlikely to get villain to fold; with the ace on the board, you no longer have a made hand.

      Remember in SSS if you get rerasied preflop, you will push all in regardless of ratio with category 1 and 2 hands (AA, KK, AK, QQ, JJ).

      Firstly, yes, by going all in, villain (and other weaker hands) might fold.

      As well, if you were all-in preflop, villain doesn't really get a chance to see a cheap flop.

      Ultimately, your QQ vs. his A6 (if he calls) is a huge advantage preflop, almost 62% to 38%.

      After you let him see his ace, you are behind 91% to 9%.

      And as Tim said, you were no longer the preflop agressor, so a contibet doesnt' work here, especially when he his VP$IP 31 which puts A6s well within his range. I think it would be very hard to get him to believe that you have AQ+, or AA, give that you called instead of rereaised preflop.

      thank you very much! so i really should have have gone all in, and he might have folded so he didnt get a chance to see the flop!

      When the villian re-raised me to ALL IN after the flop, i should really have folded right?

      Never call with SSS, push preflop and you will never find yourself in such a position on the flop. ;)

      ...if you really want to know, yes, you have trash on the flop and therefore you have to fold when villain shows action. :)

      We never call because we do not have the stack for it (=implied)
