      Wp.. You won't get away from an overpair on that flop

      I would either lead hand #1 or check/raise on flop. I think the most usual SSS player's limping hand is either some midpockets or JQ. I think leading on flop & turn would be the best.

      hand2, you can't really get a way from that situation.

      Hand 1.)
      With 14 Outs on the Turn and often still the best hand I push here.

      Hand 2.)
      I like to just limp in QQ from UTG after I doubled up since I can not protect against Pocket Pairs anymore and I play for set value, since I do not like to get stacked with an Overpair postflop.

      I guess your Opponent had eiterway a straightdraw, flushdraw or Set on Flop or Turn.

      But I do not say that you played that hand well, just that I play much tighter after I doubled up.

      2) @Berlin I don´t think that limping QQ is the best thing you can do. There is chanse that someone raise and then you fold? because you can´t call for set value. And if you limp, and there is 2-3 limpers and you have overpair on 866 board would you bet/fold flop?
      So to me it is raise or fold, since QQ is good enough to raise/push all-in, I would raise pre-flop and on that flop I get stacked:)

      Hi guys!

      First of all: NEVER EVER limp with QQ from UTG!!! To play them just for set value is really really weak. You played hand 2 very well kappe69. See also the post in the BSS forum.

      Hand 1) I would push on the turn with top pair and flushdraw. This way you are getting some fold equity and you probably still have the best hand.

      Good luck at the tables!
