re: Poker & 25nl. QQ. 4 hands in
4 betting preflop is certainly a reasonable option. When the utg player posts here I would make my preflop raise larger, to at least 4x the bb or more. Since the 3better is on the button he may interpret your raise is to isolate the poster and be squeezing you in position. I don't really like leading the flop here. It's a pretty common "where am I at line" from a lot of players that often times will lead to the preflop raiser raising you with any 2 cards. I think a check call here may be a better option, since you get to see if he fires another barrel on the turn, and to see another card. He's going to bet this flop a very high percentage of the time , regardless of his hand. On the turn you can expect information to be more reliable than information on the flop. If he bets again I'd probably give it up, without a good read.
