      Hi all

      Queens really got me in trouble this time.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      MP1:
      $0.40
      MP2:
      $0.46
      MP3:
      $0.48
      CO:
      $2.11
      BU:
      $2.45
      SB(Hero):
      $2.00
      BB:
      $0.28


      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, Q.
      MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.02, MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.09, BU folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, CO calls $0.31.

      Standard play.

      Flop: ($0.84) 2, 4, K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, CO calls $0.50.

      Not a good looking flop, obviously afraid of the king, but I had to cont-bet, unfortunately he called.

      Turn: ($1.84) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.21(All-In), Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      I didn't think he'll call me on the flop with air, I thought I was either all in or c/f at this point. Decided to c/f, correct play?

      Final Pot: $1.84.

      I think you played it fine
      some thoughts: you can c/rai ont he flop, hoping he bets with worse hands and then you don´t have to worry if he calls your flop bet
      you can c/c turn, since if he floats he is likely shoving with worse hands
      but very standard is your play, since he has there often Kx hand
