      MP3 wins with two-pair, aces and queens (Ad Qd)

      Ok so my thought process here is, obviously he could be limping any Ax,Kx,small PP usually. So i decide to lead out flop, i have two pair so i want value, and also he could have Ax and he would fold top pair if hes a fish, when he raises, im kinda like, WDF, wasnt expecting that.

      So i decide to call, thinking he can raise Ax, he could have a better two pair or a set. So i then decide to check/call turn and check/call river, as i figure, im either way ahead or way behind, if i carry on betting, likeliness is the stacks are going in, but if i check/call, check/call, likliness is stacks arent going in. Do you think this was the best option to take the passive line here???:)

      Hello keoghh,

      Well, flop & turn seems to be fine while you even getting somewhat odds for it and he could play Ax this way. Although I just don't believe he would ever almost pot the river with just Ax here. And this should be a sign where we rather should fold our weak 2pairs in freeplay pot.

      Best Regards.
