MP: $75.11 (VPIP: 30.77, PFR: 23.08, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 13)
Hero (CO): $55.28
BTN: $55.92 (VPIP: 43.01, PFR: 21.51, 3Bet Preflop: 2.86, Hands: 98)
SB: $100.53 (VPIP: 21.27, PFR: 14.81, 3Bet Preflop: 2.54, Hands: 2,503)
BB: $50.00 (VPIP: 59.01, PFR: 11.36, 3Bet Preflop: 1.22, Hands: 113)
UTG: $50.00 (VPIP: 28.57, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 7)

SB posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

Pre Flop: (pot: $0.75) Hero has Q:club: Q:diamond:

UTG calls $0.50,
Hero raises to $2.00,
BTN calls $2.00,
BB calls $1.50,
UTG calls $1.50

Flop: ($8.25, 4 players) A:club: Q:spade: 6:heart:
BB bets $2.50,
UTG calls $2.50,
Hero calls $2.50,
BTN raises to $6.50,
BB calls $4.00, fold,
Hero raises to $53.28 and is all-in,
BB calls $41.50 and is all-in

Ok, big blind is one of those players who WILL go broke with 1-pair, just FYI.
And BTN is one of those players that will probably squeeze good amount of times with that much action in front.

Turn: ($113.25, 2 players) 6:club:

River: ($113.25, 2 players) T:club:

[spoil]BB shows A:spade: 4:club: (Two Pair, Aces and Sixes)
(Pre 29%, Flop 1%, Turn 5%)
Hero shows Q:club: Q:diamond: (Full House, Queens full of Sixes)
(Pre 71%, Flop 99%, Turn 95%)
Hero wins $5.28
Hero wins $110.25[/spoil]

Should i be flatting that squeeze when i'm closing the action on the flop? Is BB willing to go broke with 1-pair reason enough to just rip it? Am i worries about giving extra equity for extra hand when BTN might not even have anything either way?

    Your initial flat post is wrong IMO.

    BB leads $2.50 into $8.25. You should be raising here to maximize value given his lead size.
    BB, like you said, is one who may felt one pair often. Given you hold three Queens, his most likely hand is an Ace, which he would be unwilling to fold most of the time.

    As played on Flop, once BU raises behind, I think the best play is to overcall once the BB calls and then Lead all Turns.

    *Reraising flop ALLIN is just way too strong and I don't see you ever doing that as a bluff.

    TLDW: You have middle set. You want stacks in on this board, preferably three of them, but two will do. Flatting makes it harder to get stacks in. You want stacks in. You got fortunate that the button helped you get stacks in. Your massive over-raise is not helping you get stacks in. Try to get stacks in. Had your raise been more gentle, you might have gotten three stacks in. You got lucky to get two stacks in.

    Is it clear you want to do everything to get stacks in? :)
