      Early on a MTT:

      Blinds at 10/20

      SB - 3,320
      BB - 3,000
      A - 3,000
      B - 3,000
      Villain - 2,940
      D - 2,990
      Hero (Button) - 2,970

      Hand - QQ

      A and B fold, C calls, D folds, Hero raises to 60, everyone folds around to C, who calls the additional 40, getting 2.8-1 pot odds. I'm putting him on a low ace, or couple of high cards, to call and then call again.

      Flop comes

      8 :spade: 5 :heart: 5 :diamond:

      C checks, Hero bets 100, villain raises to 220. Now I'm really starting to second-guess my read. I think he would not be trapping w/ AA or KK, might have the A-8, which would make sense for a few weird online players to check-raise. He might have a pocket pair such as TT, or 99, and possibly think I was continuation betting on a AK, or AQ type of hand. I reraised to get some info, to 600. He shoved all-in. Now, I'm thinking he might have that 5, but it's quite unlikely, and he could also have those 88. But I still think he's on the A8, since I've seen this move w/ this kind of hand often online.

      I call, he turns J-5, and his trips hold up. Any insights?
