      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q:spade: , Q:diamond:
      UTG2 raises to $0.25, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.25, 2 folds, Hero raises to $2.00, BB raises to $2.71 (All-In), UTG2 calls $1.67 (All-In), MP3 calls $1.71 (All-In), Hero calls $0.71.

      Flop: ($9.30) 6:diamond: , 5:spade: , 4:diamond:
      Turn: ($9.30) T:spade:
      River: ($9.30) 8:diamond: (4 players)


      Final Pot: $9.30

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows (Ac Ks)
      MP3 shows (Jd Jc)
      Hero shows (Qs Qd)
      BB shows three-of-a-kind, sixes (6h 6c)

      BB wins with three-of-a-kind, sixes (6h 6c)


      Is my raise size ok here? They were both so short stacked that I thought I might as well put them both all-in. Does this make sense or will such a big raise usually just scare away worse hands?

      Hello member001,

      Seems to be totally fine. I'd rather as well put him right preflop all-in than face some overcards on flop and be pretty much committed anyways. :D Nice hand! Just got unlucky.

      Best regards.
