      CO shows three-of-a-kind, eights (8s 4s)

      CO wins with three-of-a-kind, eights (8s 4s)

      I thought the short stack would be committed to worse Qs lower pocket pairs and maybe ace high on a paired board, so decided to put them all in on the turn.

      Yeah there isn't much more to do here on the turn. If he has a 8 - good for him :D
      I would play it the same.

      Hello penno10,

      Preflop: I don't like the raise in 6max from UTG with QJo, those limits tend to be just way too loose and I don't see playing such hands very profitable. Unless we know the opponents behind us good. I'd rather pick later positions with it. Maybe on tighter tables or as I know the opponents from MP it could be considerable, if you think your postflop play is good enough.

      As played
      Postflop: Nothing much you can do there, as long you opened it preflop then likely also I'd go broke against his stack.

      Best regards.
