      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q:heart: , Q:club:
      UTG2 raises to $0,08, 5 folds, SB calls $0,06, Hero raises to $0,32, UTG2 calls $0,24, SB folds.

      Flop: ($0,72) T:diamond: , 8:spade: , 7:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,46, UTG2 raises to $0,92, Hero raises to $4,71 (All-In), UTG2 calls $1,79 (All-In).

      Turn: ($8,14) 2:club:
      River: ($8,14) 2:diamond: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $8,14

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows a flush, ace high (Ad 8d)
      Hero shows two-pair, queens and deuces (Qh Qc)

      UTG2 wins with a flush, ace high (Ad 8d)

      Maybe shoud I just call here when UTG2 raises. But anyway here I can exclude AA, KK. He can have A :diamond: K, QJ, JJ-66. Against those hands I am slight favorite (55,6% equity).

      Hello mylove190207,

      Preflop: I wouldn't say that it's totally off to 3bet here. Against that kind of player/stack it should be still fine. He is definitely able to Call with a lot worse. Although I wouldn't exclude AA/KK in this spot while they still sometimes even Call like this with them.
      Postflop: But as you went for a 3bet than you can't really get away here while the guy could easily have a lot worse hands, pairs/PPs and maybe even draws.

      Best Regards.
