      I was very unsure about this hand. Should I've raise/folded the flop? And when played like this is it an easy fold at the river?

      From his play BB could also be a reg set mining there, but it's really hard for him to have a trips/boats/quads on 557r, so i'd put him mostly on 7x/66/88/99 trying to protect/see if he's beat or not. The MP3 fish probably has garbage, 7x/broadways/any pocket pair. If you overcall you give both of them a shot at their 2-6 outers on your hand, since unless one of them is peeling with JT or something like that if they hit they'll likely beat your hand.

      I'd likely have raised the flop but with the intention of going broke with it if they're both fishy, and probably crying if BB is a reg when he sticks around or worse, comes over the top, since unless he's nuts he has to know with the fish behind him that he needs a very strong hand to mess with you. I might fold if i see him as tight, but i don't think felting QQ there is horrible either, some players won't let go of a worse overpair.

      Hope it helps.
