      Known players:
      Hero:
      $5,72
      MP3:
      $5,10

      0,02/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.68 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with Q:diamond: , Q:club:
      Hero raises to $0,20, 2 folds, MP3 raises to $0,70, 4 folds, Hero calls $0,50.

      Flop: ($1,47) 5:diamond: , 7:club: , 8:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1,00, MP3 raises to $4,40 (All-In), Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3,47


      Should I have folded pf? Or should I have shoved pf?
      Reraise AI flop?

      I lost a lot of money with QQ and I don't want to overplay them. (QQ and AKo)

      Hi,

      Depends on the villain you can 4bet pf and get it in pf.
      As played: c/c flop and reevaluate turn. I have no idea how this guy is playing but for all we know he can play exactly the same with worser OP (99-JJ) or even OC.

      About QQ and AK , you shouldn't be worried to go all in with those hands pf when you are 100BB deep playing NL5. Most of the players of there are not brilliant, there ranges for going AI are quite wider then AK/QQ++.
      Again it depends on the villain. Against smallstack/midstack fish I'm always willing to go broke with QQ,AK pf. Against nits/tight TAGS I will be more cautious.

      Hope it helps.
