      Final Pot: $10.6.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows three of a kind, fives(Ah Kc).
      CO shows a full-house, fives full of tens(Td Ts).

      CO wins with a full-house, fives full of tens(Td Ts).


      I think they would reraise preflop if they had AA or KK and Ax hands were not very probable (maybe another AK) because the were all rather tagish, so I counted my K of clubs as a chance to hit a nuts flush. CO could easily have QQ or air, but he could have hit a set too, so my overcards draw was not that strong. But with the money already in the pot 40-44% chance to win would be enough to make it profitable and with the fold equity I have there I think the shove was reasonable at least. He showed TT, so I actually had a little over 50% chance to win on the flop. Sry for the length but I wanted to write it all :) Thx for finding any leaks in my reasoning.

      Hello redwarf01,

      I'd just Check/Fold on this flop, I don't really expect to have much fold equity there anyways and when we are against sets then we are pretty dead and have very bad equity against him. And as well we ain't drawing for the nutFD, therefore rather just give it up.

      Best regards.
