      Final Pot: $10.47

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP1 shows a pair of eights (Ah 8d)
      Hero shows a pair of queens (Kh Qh)

      MP1 wins with a pair of eights (Ah 8d)
      Hero wins with a pair of queens (Kh Qh)

      If this player had tighter stats this call would be harder just cause it smells so fishy. But they could also have hand like KQ, QJ, 9s or 10s as well as hands that have me beat like 7s or 8s, but I think it was the right call.

      Hello BigAl123456,

      Yeah, likely. His play doesn't make sense at all, if he even has a very strong hand, why should he be pushing here? I think he rather would play passively with it and try to slowplay for example if he had set there. More often he is pushing there with some kind of draws and etc. Therefore, I'd also Call the shove. :) Also it's NL4, people tend to shove even with a lot worse pairs there.

      Best regards.
