      I´m just curios if slowplay was a bad move in this situation. And if I should have only called the river because the board paired. Thx.)

      Hello redwarf01,

      Just raise the turn to protect from flushdraws and maybe even from FHes. Ain't worth to slowplay. Otherwise the river is kinda close, I guess I'd just Call it, since time to time they come up with the set there. And I don't think that they just have the Qx there which they somewhat slowplayed on flop. They would likely bet it.

      Best regards.
