      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (8 handed)

      UTG ($25.65)
      UTG+1 ($25.20)
      MP1 ($24.65)
      MP2 ($23.65)
      CO ($40.45)
      Button ($24.50)
      Hero ($5)
      BB ($14.65)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q:spade: , Q:diamond: .
      [color:#CC3333]UTG raises to $0.75[/color], [color:#666666]5 folds[/color], [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $2.5[/color], [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], UTG calls $1.75.

      Flop: ($5.25) 7:heart: , 2:spade: , 4:club: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $2.5 (All-In)[/color], UTG folds.

      Final Pot: $2.75

      Good flop for me...but since I'm OOP, I'm wondering if I should have just pushed preflop. I'm not sure how much fold equity I've got on the flop with only $2.50 into a $5.25 pot.

      Thanks,

      You don´t want that he would fold smaller pocket pairs or AJ type hands. So you should be ahead most of the time. I would push my QQ with Axx, Kxx board and only flop where I would check/fold would be AKx, because then no better hands would fold or worse hands call (JJ, TT)

      You can push here All-In if you like, his raise from UTG indicates a strong hand that often enough will call you even with AQ, AJ, AK, 99-JJ as well and not only QQ, AK, AA, KK.
