It is highly unusual to be behind pre- with QQ. The odds of a person being dealt AA or KK are about 0.45% each, so 0.9% total. Multiply by the number of people still live when you 3bet (5 in this hand) and your QQ is ahead about 95% of the time even after narrowing the opener's range because he did open. This isn't a time to be reluctant to put money into the pot.
Yes, I know QQ is ahead loads of time. But I'm saying in ZOOM I've called shoves loads of time with KK, usually the villian shows AA.
I mean, it happens way more frequently then math says it should.
That is enough for scaring me sadly.
I'm gonna stick with stt's for now.
Ty very much for the answers guys, all of you!
