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

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:diamond: , Q:diamond:
      7 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, BB calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.32) 5:spade: , 5:diamond: , 4:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.2, BB calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.72) 2:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.54, BB calls $0.54.

      River: ($1.80) 3:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $1.35, Hero calls $1.35.

      Final Pot: $4.50

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ad Qd)
      BB shows a full-house, threes full of fives (3s 3c)

      BB wins with a full-house, threes full of fives (3s 3c)

      I can see that they were ahead, every step of the way, but even so, their play makes no sense.

      Anyway, my play. I feel my post flop continuation bet was good, but I'm not so sure about my play on the turn. Was it wise to have continued the aggression? And then the river, I think the check was good, but then I shouldn't have called.

      Thanks in advance!

      Hello holnrew,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      While you have a GS+nutFD on the turn then 2nd barreling there is totally fine. Like also the bet sizes. Although I don't like the idea of Checking the river, you just let him Check behind a lot worse hands, rather Bet yourself for value.

      Best Regards.
