      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has Q:diamond: A:club:

      UTG calls $0.05, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.25, CO calls $0.25, fold, SB calls $0.23, fold, UTG calls $0.20

      Flop: ($1.05, 4 players) 8:spade: 5:heart: Q:spade:

      River: ($4.63, 2 players) 3:heart:

      UTG shows A:diamond: A:heart: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 93%, Flop 91%, Turn 95%)
      Hero mucks Q:diamond: A:club: (One Pair, Queens) (Pre 7%, Flop 9%, Turn 5%)

      Is it okay to go broke here?
      Is there anything to do against it when villain is unknown?

      Hello StraGus,

      Against villain stack I doubt that we can do much here. We are pretty much committed. :( While the guy could easily have a lot worse Qx hands and maybe even draws.

      Best Regards.
