This is a discussion on $2 NLHE Full Ring: How would you play this QQ? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; Villain 1 raises UTG+1 to 0.06c, villain 2 calls MP3, hero raises to 0.18c on button.
Villain 1 folds, villain 2 raises to 0.36c.
Would you shove,
I would raise just a little bigger the first time, because of the coldcaller in the middle. x3.5-4 instead of x3.
As played, that's practically a min-raise. I'd shove.
Experience tells me this is often a middle pocket pair looking to flip vs AK.
It wouldn't be a flip vs QQ.
Occasionally this is a donk-play with AA/KK, but my money's on 66-99.
Edit: I'm a 6-max player, though. Full ring might be different.

re: Poker & $2 NLHE Full Ring: How would you play this QQ?
You did not post any stats. But from the betting he does seem like a fish. I agree with Tim you need to make it 3.5x+ ... I generally 3x the original raise plus 1x per caller in between so that I don't give away good odds. With min re raises I'm a bit skeptic cuz I've seen more fishes with AA,KK here just like I have seen more fishes shove with AK like they r aces. Plus I play a bit passive (which is not good) so I would just call and see him on the flop.
And we are in position though it would be hard to continue to a Cbet on AKx board

i would raise hopeing to hit the flop if a king or ace come up id slo back down if there jack and lower i would raise 1/4 the pot after turn 1/2 and if no straight or flush dras all in at river, or a shove if u catch the set but this is my personal opinion
