      Preflop: Hero is BU with K:heart: , K:diamond:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, SB calls $0.13, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.35) Q:heart: , T:club: , 7:club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.25, SB calls $0.25.

      Turn: ($0.85) 6:diamond: (2 players)

      River: ($2.05) Q:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.93 (All-In), SB calls $0.93.

      Final Pot: $3.91

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two-pair, kings and queens (Kh Kd)
      SB shows (Kc 6c)

      Hero wins with two-pair, kings and queens (Kh Kd)

      Seems I have problem playing big pocket pairs when there is a pair on the flop, just notice now that I've posted like 5 similar hands in a row about this problem.. :/

      (?) River, had he bet first (and bet big), should I still shove/raise? Well I guess yeah since I'm already pot committed..

      Hey :)

      Would you mind leaving out the results, it's really annoying to block it with my eyes as it influences my evaluations on your hand. We should not care about the results as long as we play solid

      If SB shoves into you on the River, you get 3:1 meaning he needs to shove 25% of the time as a bluff rather than Qx. If you think he is capable of doing this then you can bluffcatch since the draw busted.

      I am not ecstatic to bet the River but I think on your limits, it is OK but seeing the Topcard pairing up + there is no payout from the draw

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      From posting so many hands in small period of time, I confused myself. :f_eek:

      Okay, sorry.. I was irritated by that invisible-white spacing after results, but if that helps, no problem. :D

      This, I really should learn to calculate pot odds.. Should be next on my check list..

      Thanks!
