      MP3:
      $3.60
      CO:
      $7.58
      BU:

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K, J.
      Hero raises to $0.15, 2 folds, BU calls $0.15, SB calls $0.13, BB raises to $0.25, Hero calls $0.10, BU calls $0.10, SB calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($1) T, Q, A (4 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $1.65, Hero raises to $3.30, BU calls $3.30, SB folds, BB raises to $4.95, Hero raises to $6.13, BU calls $1.88(All-In), BB calls $1.18.

      Turn: ($18.44) T (3 players)


      River: ($18.44) 6 (3 players)


      Final Pot: $18.44.
      Results follow:

      BU shows a full-house, queens full of tens(Q Q).
      Hero shows a straight, ace high(K J).
      BB shows a full-house, aces full of tens(A A).

      BB wins with a full-house, aces full of tens(A A).


      UTG raise was a bit loose, but most of the players at the table except BB were tight and I was trying to get heads up IP with BB. The min-raise got me good odds to call so it was either flop big or fold since he was playing 64/2 with 3.4 3-bet.

      So on the flop BB leads with an overbet which is kinda unusual, I'm thinking top two pair or set. I was hoping they have a combo of two pair vs set that kills some outs vs me.

      I can't be behind here, worst case I split. Can you ever fold this if you know you're against two sets or one set and two pair?

      Howdy,

      When calling preflop you obviously accept fact that your top pair type of hands won't be good enough, but given the good odds and fact that BU/SB may call behind, it's fine.

      On the flop - it's everything you've ever wanted by calling preflop and you should NEVER doubt stacking off there - you have the nuts!

      Just look at your equity on the flop:

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 71.244% 70.91% 00.33% 5763 27.00 { KdJd }
      Hand 1: 23.920% 23.59% 00.33% 1917 27.00 { AA }
      Hand 2: 04.836% 04.50% 00.33% 366 27.00 { QQ }

      or

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 70.662% 70.33% 00.33% 5716 26.67 { KdJd }
      Hand 1: 19.265% 18.94% 00.33% 1539 26.67 { QQ }
      Hand 2: 10.073% 09.75% 00.33% 792 26.67 { AQs, AQo }


      Good luck!
