Firstly hello all, I'm new here... I've been reading the forum for a while so I feel like I know you all already. So as an intro for me, I have been playing a couple of years now and have had some moderate success, I have tried most forms of the game but settled for SH Limit cash games as my prefered choice. I have held my own at 5/10 and 3/6 but have taken it in the shorts recently so have dropped back to 2/4. I play off 25/15/3.5. I really need to improve my game and I am looking forward to conrtibuting to the forum.
My last 10k hands have been a disaster and I am running at -0.66BB/100. I think my main problem is being over aggressive from the turn and not laying down when perhaps I ought to.
Anyway, QQ is killing me at the moment. In the last 50 QQ hands, I am showing an EV of -$2.65. I have won the hand 44%, gone to showdown with it 64% and won only 26% of the showdowns . Comments on the following would be appreciated.
Hand 1 - New at the table so no solid reads - SB 54/0/0.3 (25 Hands). CO 56/6/3.7 (20 hands)

I did't re raise here thinking of pot management A flush draw isn't going anywhere and would not be making a mistake in calling. Right / Wrong?

I am happy with the bet to protect my hand but is the 3 bet spewing? Anyone folding here to the CR?

Anyone check this turn? Do you call if he bets?

Too fiesty to bet here? Fairly sure villian won't bet this without a T or K, but he is the sort who would probably call with a weak hand he would raise with the Str8 or 2 pair though.
Comments welcome. Thanks
