      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP1 shows (Qs 8s)
      Hero shows two-pair, kings and queens (Kh Qc)

      Hero wins with two-pair, kings and queens (Kh Qc)

      --- Was I right to check the river? I thought he might have AQ or something and I was worried about a possible flush - but in retrospect I don't think I should have been so worried and maybe another value bet would be appropriate here?

      why do you raise relavively much preflop with K high, and only half pot flop,turn, bet atleast 3/5.
      after taking this passive line i would check behind.
      dont post results :)

      Hello Royaltramp,

      Preflop: Since there is one limper, I'd raise 5xBB.
      Postflop: Also my CBet would be bigger on flop, ~$0.15. Turn & River I'd bet both for value, he could easily Call us with a lot weaker Kx type of hands or even maybe just with Qx.

      Best regards.
