      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP1 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with K, K.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.40, 3 folds, BU calls $0.40, 2 folds, UTG2 raises to $1.75, Hero calls $1.35, BU folds.

      Flop: ($4.05) 9, 5, J (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $0.30, Hero raises to $1.40, UTG2 raises to $2.50, Hero calls $0.55.

      Turn: ($8.5) 9 (2 players)

      River: ($8.5) 8 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $8.5.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, kings and nines(K K).
      UTG2 shows a full-house, jacks full of nines(J J).

      UTG2 wins with a full-house, jacks full of nines(J J).

      Was this a UL / standard situ or could I have escaped it?

      Kind of a shame as it was near the end of my session (900 hands FTP Rush) and I was Up around $12 till that beat dropped me to $8.

      Still very early days for me so I'm just wondering if I was too keen.. maybe miss a read from his bet sizing? Should I have folded when he Re-raised me to $2.50? I just put him on AJ really as I didnt think JJ would have raised so high preflop... then again I guess AJ is even less likely too.

      .. I know I shoulda shipped on turn btw as i left myself with only 55c behind.. guess thats another failing on my part.

      Any advice appreciated

      Hey FlikstRR,

      It's an easy preflop all-in. We basically never call with SSS or MSS, specially not 3-bets.

      As played, you have to go broke on the flop with overpair, so just ship it on the flop with your stacksize.

      Best regards,
