      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 8:spade: , 8:diamond:
      UTG1 raises to $0,06, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0,06, Hero calls $0,06, CO folds, BU calls $0,06, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0,27) 8:club: , 3:spade: , 3:diamond: (4 players)
      UTG1 bets $0,1, MP2 folds, Hero calls $0,10, BU folds.

      Turn: ($0,47) 6:heart: (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $0,2, Hero raises to $0,40, UTG1 raises to $3,38 (All-In), Hero calls $1,51 (All-In).

      River: ($5,76) 5:heart: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $5,76

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG1 shows two-pair, queens and threes (Qs Qd)
      Hero shows a full-house, eights full of threes (8s 8d)

      Hero wins with a full-house, eights full of threes (8s 8d)

      preflop - standard setmining
      flop - fullhouse on flop is very rare and strong hand, so I have decided to slow play - is it good decision?
      turn - easy all-in / I think with fullhouse it is OK

      My question is - was everything OK? Is slowplay on flop OK? Only pocket pair of 33 could defeat me - but I think he wouldn't raise from UTG with 33.

      Thank you for your opinions and other tips.

      Hello toteatoo,

      Well, I would most likely raise a bit bigger on the turn but it ain't wrong to play this way either. My plan would be rather to raise to something like $0,60 and then we could easily ship the river.

      Best Regards.
