I've been playing tight and murin is a tight guy ... I thought the only hand he would re-raise me with is AK or TT or higher pocket pair. so when the flop came like that, I thought he had to call with something like TT, JJ or QQ ... I didnt put him on AA because he didn't push preflop Perhaps I should have slowplayed here, in case he has AK or something? Need help!!

well since it was totally obvious you had KK or AA here you were not going to get paid off. I would of folded QQ down to how you played that hand.

thats why I dont limp raise with KK or AA its just way too obvious.

I agree with storms, limpreraising is just a sign of fancy play syndrome. Just skip it, there´s no way you´re getting a more positive EV playing it this way rather than simply straightforward.

Also, probably no need to overbet the flop, just bet something normal like 3/4 pot and put him on a tough decision. There is a chance he might try something with a hand like AK, give him the opportunity. Betting ~pot isn´t slowplaying. If he comes over the top, you have an easy call. If he calls, you push in fourth street no matter what comes (though if an ace comes you might want to check and call a river bet).

I agree with this mostly. I don't think the L/RR play is very good at these limits. I will randomly limp-reraise for deception purposes, but I imagine deception is wasted at the players commonly seen at these levels.
