      i think the questions is this :

      With a 10BB raise and a call , pre flop, if you have a pair of queens you just call or you go all-in? you're in the first level in a freeroll.

      Go all in, if the raise is more than 6BB you wanna get it all in with QQ+. I think this belongs in the sample hands section tho ?(
