      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:diamond: , A:club:
      2 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, CO calls $0.02, BU calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.12, BB calls $0.10, MP3 calls $0.10, CO calls $0.10, BU folds.

      Turn: ($7.08) 5:spade:
      River: ($7.08) 7:club: (3 players)

      Final Pot: $7.08

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows two-pair, queens and eights (Qs 8d)
      Hero shows two-pair, aces and sevens (Ad Ac)
      BB shows (Jh 8h)

      CO wins with two-pair, queens and eights (Qs 8d)
      Hero wins with two-pair, aces and sevens (Ad Ac)

      I know this play was -ev after I saw what the other person had two pair.
      Couldn't put them on two pair, as the board does not suggest it.
      Put them on Flush Draws, Straight Draws, or Qx...

      Was this assumption okay?

      Hello nuxia,

      I don't really find myself getting proper equity there, we need like 35% for proper Call therefore I'd prefer to fold. His line is way too strong, unless I have reads that he is very fishy and able to push there even with weaker pairs I am not going to Call there. Also it's multiway, kinda not the way he has a weaker hand here with he is pushing.

      Best regards.
