Playing Pocket Queens With Tony Dunst

Tags: partypoker, Tony Dunst
Posted on Friday, July 31, 2015 by "T".
Slightly confused what to do when you are dealt two queens in no-limit Texas Hold'em? Don't worry, you are not alone! Although it's the third best starting hand of the game, many poker players aren't as confident with pocket queens as they would be with kings or aces. So, how should one play them pre-flop? partypoker Team Pro Tony Dunst recently made an article on the topic in which he explained[...]   Read more » Playing Pocket Queens With Tony Dunst

me ponders that there really is no right and no wrong way to play pocket queens, pocket 26off or any two (or four for that matter if you're playing say omaha) pocket or jacket cards. it all depends on situation- opponents, position, timing, level of confidence, height, weight and length as well. that is my take.

Those tips regarding playing queens preflop look quite reasonable. No point getting the chips in preflop, when most of the time one will be beat (KK and AA) or have a flip (AK), as will be the case with very deep stacks, unless the play is insanely aggro.

G'day mates

Lets see a flop and if there is no over card then shove them chips into the middle and hope for the best Smile
I love getting my money in with big pocket pairs once I have seen the flop and I do not see an over card to my pockets.
wishing you all the best

Shoving with it if no overcard on the flop would most likely end up in you getting the pot Ronin, though what's the point in making everybody to fold? You don't just want the pot, you want a big pot - I am bit more cautious when setmining with these.

Surely you aren't purely setmining with queens? A bit to strong a starting hand to just go for a set. A pair of queens will be sufficient to win the pot a lot of the time. Just don't bloat the pot to much.

I would always try and get pocket queens all in pre-flop and would be three betting most of the time. I find it a lot easier just to get my chips in because it takes away all tough decisions post flop

Deciding whether to shove with QQs surely depends on what sort of game you are in or what point in a tournament you are.I have seen plenty of players prepared to 3 bet all in with a pair of sixes or some people will shove with just about anything half decent late in a tourney. Smile

Where exactly did I stated that I am purely setmining with queens? I only said I'm playing them with caution when I setmine with them. You seem to read a lot of subtext into that sentence.
