      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a full-house, fives full of sixes (5h 5d)
      SB shows (8s 7s)

      Hero wins with a full-house, fives full of sixes (5h 5d)

      Ok, so as the pre-flop raiser, I continued with my story on the flop. I was letting the hand go after that if the guy showed any aggression. The gin card came on the river but could I have squeezed some more value out of this situation. I'm thinking maybe an over-shove or is that wishful thinking? Could I have played this any different? Let me know what you think.

      Hello Ghartman,

      Well, seems to be fine but I'd still raise it bigger on the river, there are so many hands which are capable of calling and are worse. :) ~$1,60 at least.

      Best Regards.
