      0,02/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.95 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 6:spade: , 5:heart:
      MP1 calls $0,05, 2 folds, CO calls $0,05, 2 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0,17) Q:club: , 6:diamond: , 6:club: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($0,17) 3:club: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks, CO bets $0,12, Hero calls $0,12, MP1 folds.

      River: ($0,41) 4:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0,6, Hero calls $0,60.

      Final Pot: $1,61

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows a full-house, threes full of sixes (3h 3s)
      Hero shows (6s 5h)

      CO wins with a full-house, threes full of sixes (3h 3s)

      what is bigger mistake.

      a) not protect hand on flop
      b)call overbet on river

      Hello crodady,

      Flop: Definitely bet it out here, to protect your hand and also get value from any kind of pair.

      As played
      Turn: As the flush came, it's better to just Check/Call since we really don't want to face a raise, since we will often be behind when we get into that and hardly can Call. But we still may hit our FH on river. Therefore Check/Call, is right.
      River: I'd Check/Fold against such a over-bet, we don't beat much here.

      Best regards.
