      UTG1 wins with two-pair, queens and fives (Qs Qd)

      What could I have done better? Did the check/call of UTG show strength? And I was planning to fire at the river but didn't because he might have slow played a made hand.. was the check the right choice? Tnx again for the reply. :]

      Hello timsuy,

      Preflop: While there is one limper I would raise to 10 cents.
      Postflop: Nah, I wouldn't have played here much differently, most likely I would have played the same way. We get value on flop & turn from a lot of hands and maybe even draws.

      Best Regards.
