      MP1 bets $3.28, Hero calls $3.06.

      Final Pot: $8.52.
      Results follow:

      MP1 shows a full-house, fives full of aces(5 5).
      Hero shows a flush, ace high(Q K).

      MP1 wins with a full-house, fives full of aces(5 5).

      His open call pre-flop should have led me to believe he had a small pair but even so. My bet on the flop was small but it was more for value than protection.

      Hello 0744379,

      Well, what kind of hands do you expect to beat on river? You hold 2 strong flushes, he is never shipping there with J. So for me it's a fold. :)

      Best Regards.

      I think you should bet bigger on both flop and turn. River is a tough fold, but I dont know if I could fold it, im a calling station :) .

      Yep, true. I would most likely bet bigger as well, if they have a hand they are willing to pay anyways.
