      Heyhello! :)

      Just a quick one please;


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):
      $0.83
      BB:
      $0.74
      MP1:
      $1.13
      MP2:
      $0.91
      MP3:
      $2.21
      CO:
      $0.84
      BU:
      $2.41


      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, K.
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, BB calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.16) 5, 5, Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.13, BB raises to $0.34, Hero raises to $0.75, BB calls $0.32.

      Turn: ($1.57) T (2 players)


      River: ($1.57) J (2 players)


      Final Pot: $1.57.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, queens and fives(Qh Kc).
      BB shows a full-house, tens full of fives(Ts Td).

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

      So when the flop comes I cbet and he raises I am surprised - I do not put 5 in his range at all. If he had a monster I would have expected him to 3bet my pre? So since I am not convinced I shoved - I did not expect to fold but I just thought I am ahead so let's get it in - any thoughts?

      Cheers,

      AKM

      Hello!

      I think this play is fine but sometimes you want him to continue his bluff on the Turn so you can either do the play you did or bet/call Flop and check/shove Turn

      We are not neccesarily afraid of any card coming down on the Turn as AQ has us beat already anyway and Ax except A5 is quite unlikely in his raising range
