      Hero shows (Kh Qh)

      MP1 wins with a full-house, threes full of jacks (Js 3c)

      --- Would a flat call when he raised on the flop have been better? Admittedly there was no way I could put him on J3 after he called my pre-flop raise, but he could have had QJ, 33, JJ or QQ. I think at the time I suspected a bluff or a flush draw though.

      Hello Royaltramp,

      Against such a 50BB stack guy I'd also ship it on flop, well played! He could easily have a lot weaker Qx there which is trying to protect from FD or SD.

      Best regards.
