      Final Pot: $1.25.
      Results follow:

      MP3 shows a full-house, queens full of aces(A A).

      MP3 wins with a full-house, queens full of aces(A A).
      Hero wins with a full-house, queens full of jacks(J J).


      Can I play this any differently vs his stack? Obviously I made a note that he's slowplaying his aces preflop. Should I just skip the cbet vs this stack size since the board is not that drawy anyway?

      I thought about this one a good bit and imo you were not wrong to bet the flop but the call should have set off alarm bells. Unless you knew him to be a calling station there are few hands you are beating once that queen comes down on the turn. So in summary I agree with your conti bet but I would have checked the turn

      Thanks for the feedback. What would you do if he bets the turn though, are you gonna fold it? We have 4:1 pot odds and there's way more hands that we beat than lose to I think (he's probably not folding any pocket pair, and is unlikely to have a Q).
