Default Pocket Queens...

Hiya,

I have been reading Dan Harringtons books and he says push AA, KK & QQ as hard as poss but what would everyone do in this situation

its 15/30c on 888
Im UTG with QQ I limp with the idea of reraising as the table has been tight and generally 1 raise has been winning the hand
every folds round to 1 before the button who raises 1.50
button and SB fold
BB calls
I reraise to 6
Original raiser goes all in and the BB folds
What would you do? (i have approx 1/2 stack on Original Raiser)

Hey slippyjim,

There are a few problems with your question that makes it basically impossible to answer.

First, you didn't tell us your stack size. It sounds like the villain has you covered, but how much money do you have left behind if you fold? The answer your question as to what we would do depends monumentally on this number. If the answer is $10,000, you're probably finding a fold. If the answer is $4 it's the easiest call you'll ever make in your life. That information matters a lot.

Two more points:

- You mention Harrington on Hold'em and then post a cash game hand. Keep in mind HOH is a book for tournament poker and not really that useful for learning cash game play.

- Your reasoning for wanting to limp-raise seems flawed to me. That move makes more sense the looser and more aggressive the table is playing. If everyone is playing tight, the likelihood of you getting to go for the limp-raise is much lower so it makes less overall sense as a play.

Finally, on the next hand you post here, follow killcrazy's tips for the 6 pieces of information you should include (this specific list is for tournament hands, so I guess just focus on posting items 1, 2 and 4):

1. your stack
2. opponent's stack
3. average stack
4. size of big blind/cost of one orbit (i.e. total of BB+SB+antes)
5. how many players left
6. how many players get paid
