  • 25NL 6max - btn QQ, love it or hate it, I had a fishy read on the open raiser

    Just one for the guys and girls who may decide to stack pre flop with btn QQ.

    I took a betting line to over call a recreational player, hope for a squeeze behind and jam over the top.

    If this fancy play syndrome is bad you're probably going to hate it. Nice turn so I'm the happy cat and love it.

    I had a note on the open raiser about bet sizing in SNGs nothing to do with 6max cash games and no info on the player who squeezed. Anyway I got two callers.

    One for the "one time" archives?

    Hi Forrest,

    Sorry, but I don't like it.

    If the opener is a fish, not 3-betting to isolate him with QQ is a significant mistake. Having a chance to get more money in the pot while simultaneously getting HU with the fish IP is such a hugely profitable situation, we shouldn't want to share the profits with the blinds by passing it up and inviting them in with just a call. Conversely, if the opener were a better player and the fish was in the blinds, now calling makes sense, as we want to play pots with the fish so invite him in, instead of 3-betting and blowing him out.

    You don't state reads on the blinds, just that you were hoping for a squeeze behind. I would only favor passing up this hugely profitable situation with a flat call if one of the blind players was also a huge fish that happened to be super squeeze happy.
