      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 2, 2.
      UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, Hero calls $0.10, MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.40, 3 folds, MP1 calls $0.30, Hero calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($1.35) 3, 5, 5 (3 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($1.35) 2 (3 players)
      MP1 bets $0.60, Hero calls $0.60, CO folds.

      River: ($2.55) T (2 players)
      MP1 bets $0.90, Hero raises to $2.65(All-In), MP1 calls $1.75.

      Final Pot: $7.85.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a full-house, twos full of fives(2 2).
      MP1 shows a full-house, tens full of fives(T T).

      MP1 wins with a full-house, tens full of fives(T T).
      Preflop and flop play seem okay to me. When we hit our fullhouse on river, I would bet bigger - if someone has something he likes on microstakes, he is about to pay us off. Shoving the river is nice - no way I am folding fullhouse in this spot :)

      Hello durinko,

      Should add to full stack.

      Preflop: With playing MSS we ain't able to limp like that and play profitable, so fold.

      As played
      Postflop: We wont get away with our FH.

      Best Regards.
