      I didn't want to get pushed off my QQ preflop with a limper's money in the pot so I call to evaluate the flop. I bet 1/2 pot as a probe in case of KK+ from the 3bettor. Should I have 4bet preflop and call a shove? Should I have potted the flop hoping BU has overs?

      Not quite sure whether tag on tag violence in BU vs CO situations has made it's way down to nl2 yet. Either way calling is ok, 4bet/calling gets better and better along with BU willing to go broke lighter.

      Once you call tho, i think letting BU c-bet that very dry 665r board will likely be better, barring a read that he doesn't c-bet much. That will put you in a slightly tougher situation if BU BB sticks around after BU c-bets but it's worth giving him a shot to fire out air hands imo. If i don't i'd go bigger, when we get called (and not raised) by either of these guys it'll be some kind of overpair we want to get value from better a scarecard comes. If it's BB who calls we're betting all the way going broke.

      Hope it helps.
