      Hello BGawli,

      Well, obviously your play is fine till river. There it becomes more complicated while he is never-ever shipping there with strong made hand. Therefore the question is if he is doing that with flushes? Most likely could be even possible, for that given reason I guess it's gonna be hard for us to fold the hand.

      Although 88/44 are also very likely and even 55 which would definitely play the same way and might even be QQ while his stats don't seem to be very good:

      Board: 8:diamond: 5:club: 5:diamond:  4:diamond:  Q:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    61.11%  61.11%   0.00% { QQ, 88, 55-44, KdQd, KdJd, QdJd, KdTd, QdTd, JdTd, Td9d, 7d6d }
      UTG+1  38.89%  38.89%   0.00% { Ad2d }

      We need in this case ~29% equity. Which means of course if we expect the opponent to raise with such hands? If we remove couple of flush type of hands then it's near break-even Call. So for that reason it's kinda close I'd say.

      Best regards.
