      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2:
      $2.20
      MP3:
      $1.23
      CO:
      $1.20
      BU:
      $2.04
      SB:
      $4.02
      BB:
      $2.00
      UTG2 (Hero):
      $2.55
      MP1:
      $4.83


      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with Q, Q.
      Hero raises to $0.08, MP1 calls $0.08, 4 folds, SB calls $0.07, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.26) 3, J, 2 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.13, MP1 calls $0.13, SB raises to $0.45, Hero calls $0.32, MP1 folds.

      Turn: ($1.29) 3 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.61, Hero calls $0.61.

      River: ($2.51) T (2 players)
      SB bets $1.79, Hero calls $1.41.

      Final Pot: $5.71.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, queens and threes(Qs Qh).
      SB shows two pairs, threes and twos(Ad 2c).

      Hero wins with two pairs, queens and threes(Qs Qh).

      So I have a problem, that I get too attached to high pairs, and it not folding them brings me into difficult situation. So in this hand, I just didn't want to fold my overpair, but also I couldn't put him on a hand (offcourse If i look at the hand now, he could have had a lot of hands, but at the time when the hand was happening I didn't think too deep). So when should I have let go of the hand, or was folding even an option?

      Hello Krishjanis,

      The first mistake you did was on flop the bet size. Which might easily even induce him to raise. But as played I'd just Bet/Fold it being in multiway pot unless I know the opponent. I don't like it that much. But wouldn't even be surprised if he just saw weakness in your bet size and went for bluff, that's why you shouldn't bet that small. :)

      In this hand you practically only beat bluff.

      Best regards.
