      I raised from the UTG with QQ. The flop was good for CB. On the turn I bet for value (and also protection from flushdraws and straightdraws). Since he checked to me on the river, and flushdraws were busted, I decided for value bet AI. According to his play, I put him on overpair, since 4X or flush would bet the river most of the time, IMO.

      I didn't have stats on him, since he just joined the table.

      BB checks, Hero raises to $6.65(All-In), BB calls $5.90(All-In).

      Final Pot: $21.
      Results follow:

      BB shows a straight, six high(K 5).

      Hero wins with two pairs, queens and fours(Q Q).

      Hello Alleen86,

      There are a lot of worse pairs which are capable of Calling there, although the question is if they are capable of calling against such a shove with smaller PPs. Although if you think he is fishy enough then it should be doable.

      Best regards.
