      Turn: ($0.43) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks.

      River: ($0.43) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, MP2 raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.20.

      Final Pot: $1.23.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of queens(Ad Qd).
      MP2 shows a flush, ace high(As 2s).

      MP2 wins with a flush, ace high(As 2s).

      Well, flush seems obvious on turn. Nevertheless I called the raise on river because it is really small (1/5 of pot) and I didn't rule out a bluff.

      Hello jockel80,

      I guess there is not really worth Calling on river anyway, even if it's min-raise. You will be behind there just too often. Only reason to Call there is to see his hand and take note on him.

      Best regards.
