      I think on the long run you are ahead here...most of the time there are small chances villain has the same suits as you...
      however this is could be "a specials case" till villain was just calling your bets so it's possible that he was on draw to (and he actually was :D ), so it depenends on opponent. With BSS I would play this cautionaly...

      Well, you seem to be playing with a $10 stack on a $25 BI, so that is not quite right.

      If you are going to bet as though you are protecting against the flush draw, then you should bet more on the turn. As it is, he easily gets the odds to call.

      You could fold preflop.

      Imo fold pf. As played nh

      @ Thorsten77 - Is Q5s playable on FR table, from SB even with 2 limpers?

      very few hands are playable with a 40BB stack, any two suited definitely isn't.

      but i think Q5s, with 3+ limpers is ok. 2 limpers is too loose.

      I didn't recognize that he didn't play with a full stack. With this stack, its a fold. Given full stacks, its a very marginal play, but if you have postflop skills, I'd think its a marginal +EV play given there are several limpers. However, you don't make a mistake by folding it and if you have problems with marginal hands, then I think a fold is better than a call.
