      BU shows two pairs, queens and tens(Q T).

      Hero wins with a flush, king high(J K).
      MP1 wins with a flush, ace high(A A).

      i believe this was a really bad call... i had 15 outs but since some were obviously not clean i decided to discount to 12 outs and overvalued my hand which is why i called. one of my problems is overvaluing my strong draws and im too eager to get the money in the pot. i would like your views on this hand please cos i thought it was quite interesting. thanks

      Hello DrDunne,

      Preflop: Rather just fold it preflop, you will face way to ugly spot postflop as which even happened. :) KJo ain't the greatest hand to play in multiway pot.

      As played
      Postflop: Just fold it, not really worth while you will never even know where you stand with your K high FD. The draw you have here isn't that strong as you imagine, not that many clean outs even.

      Best Regards.
