I would call the jam also i guess, board looks pretty good for QQ, I dont think he limp calls pre with 88 99 or 1010 from MP+1. I would be worried about a 2 pair hand. It's messed up you block the KQ and he still had it. Hmmmm. Yeh i would call and lose there also.
I play Micro don't trust my opinion!
re: Poker & What you would do with QQ in that situation?
Ya I am also calling here, board has a lot of draws as well as us obv blocking the nuts. It sucks to run into it but sometimes you will run into the nuts. We also even have a flush draw blocker, so I just don't see myself ever folding in this spot either.
More than likely even if you got it all in preflop you would have been called. It's a tough situation, if my opponent always rejams with made or next to made hands then I can see a fold ......a very rare fold but it would have to be an amazing read. Crappy luck but no matter the raise preflop you were getting it in
Yeah wayyyy to many draws and combo draws are willing to pile it in on this flop not to call it off with QQ, plus we have straight outs to improve, counterfeit outs if they have 2 pair, and a backdoor Q flush draw if he has a straight without the Ks.
You just unfortunately ran into the hand that you have almost no win equity. and a small chop equity but so many hands in his range we do great against by the river.
TeUnit: "You have 2 bbs left, I would call with a Uno Card and a Ken Griffey Jr. Card and be happy getting it in. With the money already in the pot you are getting great odds to call and if there were antes its even better."
in this situation so hard to fold, we have many outs to straight and runner-runner flush, but push from MP+1 looks like very strong hand, set nines or ready straight, so as for me, may be i would fold.
This is a tough situation, because you know you've got a good hand with lots of outs. However, Their range hits this board pretty well. Think about what they would limp call with: KQ, QJ, JT, Axs for example. You're behind at least half of the likely hands they have and when they check shove it only makes sense for them to do that with 2 pair, Straight, and flush draw, putting your equity in a miserable spot. Unless you know they would recklessly bluff, then you've got to fold. Begrudgingly fold since they played like a moron. And then move on.
