      Final Pot: $3,91

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two-pair, aces and fives (As Qc)
      BU shows (Kh 7h)

      Hero wins with two-pair, aces and fives (As Qc)

      I figured that only hand that he could be playing like this and beat me was 88 or a slowplayed 99 or 55 (with AK he would have raised me preflop) so I called. Did I play correctly?

      I'm not a big fan of calling his all-in. He can have set or SD with FD. I don't think you can profit on long run with that play, because oponent will have at least two pairs so your high pair is not so good. So make a note on that player so you can consinder calling him, otherwaise I am not a big fan of that. Good luck at tables! And sorry because of so many "so" :D

      Hello adsefghijk,

      I'd still Bet it bigger ~$0,16 on flop while it's even kinda drawy. But otherwise really close spot. He may easily have a lot of hands actually which beat you like 2pairs/sets and maybe even made straights sometimes like 67. :) And we beat? Pretty much just some aggressively played draws and maybe if he has some kind of weaker Ax hands in his range. We need ~36% equity. And if we include all the Ax hands:

      Board: A:diamond: 9:heart: 5:heart:  8:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    52.07%  49.66%   2.41% { 99, 55, A2s+, 98s, 76s, JhTh, A2o+, 98o, 76o }
      UTG+1  47.93%  45.51%   2.41% { AsQc }

      Then we are even able to do it while he really has a wide VPIP range. But it's of course really questionable if he even could have that wide all Ax range.

      Best Regards.
