      UTG1 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 5 folds, SB calls $0.18, BB folds.

      Final Pot: $4.75.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, aces and queens(Ad Ac).
      SB shows three of a kind, queens(Qh Jd).

      SB wins with three of a kind, queens(Qh Jd).



      I mean what kind of a jerk calls an UTG raise with a freaking QJo? I didnt want to make any more significant improvements to the size of the pot on the turn, i was afraid tha he turned tens full or some funky stuff like that. I guess that i should have folded on the river, what do u say?

      he has there very often Qx, but I´ve seen also people taking same lines with complete bluffs or smt like AT, so calling down with aces is mostly right play there, unless is really passive and you don´t expect him never to bluff there
