do we call this? Was the initial bet size of up to $2.20 ok? I'm thinking majority of the time we're beat here but we're getting decent odds. Do enough AK, AQ, and JJ (and possibly even 99 or another lower pair or A-rag donk play) hands justify a call here?
Damnit- hate that the original raiser is pushing out of positioon, and QQ is one of least profitable hands.
That being said- only 3 hands are ahead of you preflop, and "it's the micros"- meaning he may have 9 10 s00ted for all you know.
I'm calling, and not surprised if I see either AA or 88.
As for your raise- I'd make it $1.50, but generally, I'm not trying to push someone out of a hand I think I'm ahead in.
