      Hi bordzter,


      Easy push with QQ here, even though BB looks a bit tight, calling is a must.

      Hey bordzter,

      may I ask, do you play BSS or you just tripled up on the table? ...because if you search BSS answers then it's better to post in the BSS forum. Asking because I saw very big stacks in all the hands you posted.

      BB could be a pokerstrategy.com SSS player and thus his 4-bet range would be KK+. But if I'm not sure about that I would just go broke with QQ, because you already invested money and you only play for 26.5BB stack. Because both opponents are shortstacked it's same as if you only had short stack as well and with short stack we never fold queens after we made a raise. Nice hand.

      Regards,

      i am actually playing SSS but i found myself in such situations as it is successive hands (they are at different tables)...

      in this one i had two previous hands which was called and won both of them... i had AA... then KK then this one QQ

      Good to see you having good card runs. :)

      I know bigger stacks are usually more difficult to play, so just keep posting whenever you're unsure or think an advice would come in handy.
