      Final Pot: $5.76

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows three-of-a-kind, queens (Qh Qc)
      SB shows (9s 9c)

      Hero wins with three-of-a-kind, queens (Qh Qc)

      Small Blind raises pot I thought this was defending a hand like 2 pair or TPTK at first or a flopped straight. I min raised in the hopes of getting more information at this point and he pretty much puts me all in. A this point I felt committed with top set and i call/ put in the extra. I think it's a bit of a dangerous play.

      Would flat calling and re evaluating on the turn be better?

      Hello TeddyTaiwan,

      With your top-set we are not getting away here but what I don't like is the min-raise you are doing there. It's just horrible, you are giving away very good odds. Rather make it normal raise ~$0,80+ and get it in.

      Best regards.
