I strongly disagre with "never fold them preflop". I have folded QQ preflop many times and I've usually been correct in my assessment that I'm either behind or flipping. I have occasionally folded QQ and the other 2 players show up with AQ and JJ....doh! but you can't be right all the time and I think overall, my preflop folds with QQ have saved me many chips, and saved me my tourney life much more than they've cost me.
That said....it's really a shame if you can't at least see a flop with QQ. I rarely fold them preflop.
Here are the kinds of flops I'll fold QQ on:
AKx with 1 bet
AT9 with 1 bet and 1 call
AJx with 1 bet and a call
89T with a flush draw with 1 bet and a raise, or 1 bet and 2 calls
789 all the same suit with 1 bet and 1 call
Here are the kinds of flops I'll pot control with QQ on: basically any flop that doesn't contain a Q!!!
