      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, jacks and fives(Js Jh).
      MP2 shows two pairs, queens and fives(Qd Qc).

      MP2 wins with two pairs, queens and fives(Qd Qc).

      No opponent stas, strange when i played i saw them, but when i replay the hand on HEM, it doesn't show anything.

      Should i go for bet turn and check behind/fold river? or check turn and check behind/call ~1/2 pot bet? or should try to see cheap showdown after my raise was called on flop, although i though that i could get payed if opp onentwith has overpairs 66, 88, 99, TT.

      Hello valancius,

      I'd actually even say that sometimes I like Checking behind the turn for the reason that it will be anyways hard for him to Call with a lot worse. Also Checking behind might induce him to Call with A high which he wouldn't Call 2 streets. Also we keep the pot smaller, in case he decides to do some fancy moves.

      Best regards.
