Did I play QQ correctly in this situation?

At 1/2 1/3 cash games, it's fish central, a lot of good (average shark) players will min-raise nuts (or close to nuts) thinking you can never get out of it. Sharks know one thing, fish can't fold. ...

Would you call all in with king high flush with a pair on the board?

My best simple answer would be "It depends". Folding here would likely be the most accurate option if you were working in a data vacuum. I have found that most of the time the player is not ...

Tough spot with Aces against regular, NLHE-6max

Preflop is standard and flop is fine. At that point, the only hand that beats you is a flopped flush and even then you have a strong re-draw to a full house. On the turn, I'd bet more. Your hand ...

Did I play QQ correctly in this situation?

On the flop you should make it like $20-$25. Really small, because realistically villain never has any good hands (I think he should fold 88 and slowplay aces and kings only rarely). Villain will be ...

I think you played OK. I like that pre-flop bet. QQ is a hand to protect. I get villain calling with any pair in position. He could be on a suited ace or even suited connectors. On the flop I think ...

How was this hand played? Any leaks I should be concerned about?

In addition to Clarko's excellent answer, I also don't like the lead post-flop. The awkward sizing commits you even when you're sure you're behind. K-high dryish boards favour your villain's range. AA,...
