      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows (Js Jd)
      BU shows two-pair, aces and fives (Ah Qs)
      Hero shows two-pair, kings and fives (Kh Kd)

      BU wins with two-pair, aces and fives (Ah Qs)
      Hero wins with two-pair, kings and fives (Kh Kd)

      PF: I decided to call here. I thought UTG would likely shove AK, AQ, AJ, QQ, a range I have crushed, due to me looking very much like a smaller pocket pair by calling. And I felt if I reraised I would make all his worse hands fold.

      Flop: When he called preflop I put him on TT, JJ maybe 99, I didn't think there are many hands he could raise/call 3bet preflop with. c/r I think looks to strong so I donked and hoped he would raise.

      Was it ok played? I was really happy when he showed he had exactly what I put him on, but I realise this doesn't always mean the hand was played well!

      Thanks for feedback

      Hello Jeffers16,

      Yeah, I like to take such plays also sometimes for the given reason that we might just scare away UTG with our 4bet but he still could shove over us with a lot worse. Otherwise nice hand!

      Best regards.
