      Definitely wrong play from my side on the flop!
      I am sure you will tell me this :)
      Actually I guess you know how it ended.
      Good run of cards,but bad run of community cards. :)
      And I want to share with you that today I was able to finish the whole bronze strategy and I'm really doing better, but I guess all players have such days and I shouldn't get angry and must continue to follow the BSS strategy? Actually this is my general question.

      $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Holdem

      River: K:heart: ($4.26, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      Final Pot: $4.26

      Any advises how I had to play those QQ?

      Since he only started the hand with 50bb I would rather get it in preflop. Calling 4bets out of position pretty much sucks in general, although I suppose in this case it pretty much has the same result.

      As played: I'm not sure why you are betting the flop, since if he calls us we are usually in bad shape. We can assume his range for calling AI on the flop is AK and JJ+ (provided he is not a complete donk), and this range crushes us. If you think he will 4bet with worse and then bluff his chips off as a continuation bet then I guess you could check/call, depends on the player :)

      But shove preflop against this stack size :D

      Anyway I was going to call his all in at any stage because of his short stack.
      Probably even with Ace on Flop. LOL!
      I was 50/50 to go from his reraise to all in preflop, but I really got distracted. Kinda hoped for Q on the flop. :)

      Heh, and yeah I agree about calling any flop. I was just suggesting that his range for calling all in is tighter than his range for shoving himself on the flop. Fish like to be the one who is pushing :tongue:

      I would just shove it pf
      He has there 50bb so he can really get all-in much wider range than QQ
      And you see all 5 cards instead of only flop where you might c/f on K and A board
