      I dont think it was a bad play from your side, I'd play it the same way. A simple K would ruin you, so it was best played safe.
      Shoving all in would be unwise, as these players were playing ... not so well with their hands.

      So in the long run, you will be more succesfull then them, I promise you that :D

      I'm never folding QQ on that flop at that limit, you will see that kind of action with A7, sometimes A4, 88-JJ. Yes occasionally someone will have a set but I still think it is profitable + you have good odds to call after the bet. Having said that, I can't blame you for wanting to fold. Against good players you are almost always behind.

      bad fold ....easy call.... altough you dont have to protect that much on that flop so the bet could be smaller ....the way you played you ve commited almost half your stack and then folded i think it s a really bad play...

      Pretty sweet spot I have to say. It's spots like this where u'll earn/lose a lot of ur money with SnGs. While it's understandable u don't want to get stacked by a set, I'd have no problems checking behind and observing how the action would develop. Sure u don't want to see any A or K on the turn or river but at the same time u have to consider these things:
      -ur in a multiway pot, so it's not unlikely someone has a better hand
      -if u bet anything remotely sensible ur almost pot committed meaning u are facing another tough decision
      -this is a SnG so u can't really add more chips to ur stack at this time
      -the check/call line will either:
      a) narrow the field for u
      b) give u a free card and make ur decision easier for u on the turn
      c) possibly give u the correct pot odds to make it an easy push for u
      -it's a 5$ SnG, how often do u expect ppl to play their strong hands this way?
      -a few other various bits and pieces ...

      So all in all, I'd never blame u if u check the flop and hope someone makes it a bit easier for u. As played I'm never folding though.

      As some coach said in a video here: Kings are like aces and you know queens are like kings so just stick it in with an overpair on the low limits up to the $20 level. :f_cool:
