      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ad Qc)
      SB shows a full-house, deuces full of eights (2d 2c)

      SB wins with a full-house, deuces full of eights (2d 2c)

      Could I have got away from this, or is it a cooler?

      Question 1: should I have folded to his re-raise all-in on the turn? The board is so dry I am only realistically behind to 88 / 22. On the other hand his shove over my raise seems incredibly strong so perhaps I should indeed have put him exactly on one of those hands.

      Question 2: should I have folded BEFORE his re-raise all-in on the turn? Thinking about it afterwards, his line of call preflop, check/minraise flop and then bet out on the turn is already extremely strong and smells of successful set mining.

      Hello member001,

      Flop: Since he has such an AF then I would often even expect him to do such a minraise also with draws or even just a weaker Ax hand. So I would likely just 3bet there an try to get in, cooler if he has the 22s there. Also he doesn't have a full stack so likely is a bad player.

      As played
      Turn: Raise it up and go broke, nothing much we can do, well played.

      Best regards.
