Okay the first Villain's friend is sitting to my right. He is a better player than Villian 1 in the AA hand.

I know he's good and strike up a conversation. I ask him what he thought I had, and he says combo draw. I'm like WTF?
I thought this guy was pretty good. My line is so strong and he thinks combo draw. I don't know. I can't help myself and I'm so frustrated by blowing
that hand I say no 1010 how would you play it. And he says 250 on the flop. ( I don't think he knew there was 175 in there.) Put pressure
on AA guy to raise. And I'm like yeah yeah yeah. %&%$%#&&^%$^ I always bet out sets, but I just felt it seemed so strong. Ugh.

Okay now our hand. Effective stacks 1800

He raises 25, I have QQ in the cutoff and reraise to 80. He calls


I bet 125 he calls


I ......???

    Agree again.. How many kings does this guy have? Maybe floating with AK but honestly I doubt he can raise you on the turn.

    AND STOP DISCUSSING HANDS AT THE TABLE! you donk! confusedwink

    I wouldnt want even a good player know that I understand hand reading etc... just keep em guessing..

    I agree its bad to discuss hands. Very bad leak of mine. Its a little tough because I play with the same people a lot and
    my worst poker attribute is my friendliness. Showing hands, talking hands, blah blah blah.

    Generally I never show but at times I get dumb.

    So whats funny about this hand is our discussion about the previous hand. He said the best route would be to bet out.

    So K hits the turn and I bet 225. He calls. The river is a Q which finishes the straight but unless he has KK or A0d I'm not worried.

    I bomb 600 and he snaps calls. He had a set lol. I guess JJ. He was hoping I would hang myself. He said if the river blanked no diamond
    he would bet out the river. In which i would fold. But he didn't use his own advice and bet the flop. Funny.

    This flop is very different to TT hand. Here he blocks TP so taking more passive line is better. I hate flopping top sets especially with AA or KK - very hard to get paid.
