    I doubt any reasonable play will get opener to fold pre, just call this one a cooler and move on.

      Hi moreevmurph! With QQ, I get a min-raise in front of me. I need to make a standard 3-bet here and the key is the sizing of it. I need to raise to between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise if that number is larger. Due to this, I'll raise to 3290. I absolutely cannot just call this bet. Doing so gives the opp the right odds to be in the pot against me (along with inviting the opps behind me into the pot where they get a +EV play to call. If I give the opps a +EV play and they outdraw me... it' my own fault that I lose the hand. The flop brings multiple draws and the opp makes an abnormally small bet of 1k (standard is a 1/2 pot bet against one opp). I absolutely need to raise here and will size the raise at a 1/2 pot raise (3145). The opp now click-back raises. Here is where a read on the opp is absolutely necessary. If the opp is tight, they most likely have a set or overpair and I need to fold. If the opp is playing very loose, then I'm jamming on them. The big key with this hand though is preflop... I gave the opp a +EV play, so I deserve to lose the hand. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
