      Position:
      Stack
      UTG2:
      $4.22

      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Q:heart: , Q:spade:
      UTG2 raises to $0.12, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.48, 4 folds, UTG2 calls $0.36.

      Flop: ($1.02) 7:diamond: , 5:heart: , 5:spade: (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.72, UTG2 calls $0.72.

      Turn: ($2.46) 9:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $1.76, UTG2 raises to $3.02 (All-In), Hero calls $1.26.

      River: ($8.50) 8:club: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $8.50

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows a full-house, nines full of fives (9h 9s)
      Hero shows (Qh Qs)

      UTG2 wins with a full-house, nines full of fives (9h 9s)

      I feel like no, but is it only a better hand shoving here? I think some nut flush draws that floated the flop (AKd, AQd?) could maybe do so, or is it always 99 or 77? I don't really see him turning up with a 5 here, nor KK or AA.

      Generally I'm definitely getting it in postflop as well.
      The only thing I do differently is about the betsizing - I bet $0.88 on the flop and shove the turn myself.
      Imo if he has worse overpairs he's still almost never folding.
