    Hi sapines1001! With QQ (or any other hand I'm going to open with at this blind level), I'm going to make a standard raise to 2.5BB+1BB for each limper, so I will raise to 500. I get a 3-way flop that is very coordinated. When it checks to me, I have two options. I can either make a standard c-bet of 2/3 pot, which I will do the majority of the time, (1333 chips) or with it being a very coordinated board and no reads, I could also delay my c-bet to the turn (if it's a blank). The turn doesn't help me, but pairs the board and completes the flush. If I'm going to make one more attempt to win the pot, I'm going to do it here and not on the river. The reason for this is that there are a number of draws that the opp can have and if they are drawing, I want them to have to make a -EV play to do so. Due to this, I'll bet 1/2 pot (2565). If the opp calls both a flop and turn bet, then I will check down the river and hope to go to showdown. My hand does have showdown value, but may easily be beat. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
