      Hero shows two pairs, kings and queens(Qs Kd).
      MP2 shows a straight, ace high(4d As).

      MP2 wins with a straight, ace high(4d As).

      Only 4 hands with villain but he looked fishy 64/17

      I know I could shove turn but I would isolate against the made straights. Probably bet bigger on flop and shove turn, however the board started pretty dry and ended like an ocean -_-. On the river I planned to check-call because he's capable of betting any pair, probably.

      Hi,

      No I don't think you are isolating yourself against made straights. Loads of worse 2pair possibilities or pair+straightdraws that are out there


      The problem in this hand is your betsizing, it is inadequate. if you raise pre 1bb more or cbet $1 on the Flop, you can just easily shove the Turn. So next time you have to watch that before you bet
