Pocket Q's always are a dilema for me. I've learned at least that you have to judge how your table is playing; loose or tight. At a loose table I would just flat call knowing that someone will raise. At a tight table I would raise a fair amount to get the junk hands to fold. But always be carefull how you play the Q's after the flop; this is where mistakes are made. Make sure your Q's are good before commiting most of your chips.
