      Final Pot: $2.21.

      Results follow:

      BB shows a full-house, fours full of jacks(4s 4h).
      Hero shows two pairs, queens and jacks(Qs Ac).

      BB wins with a full-house, fours full of jacks(4s 4h).

      Stats on BB, 40/0 over 5 hands (vpip/pfr)

      Flop is kind of wet, but not really, still I decided to go for a 2/3 pot size cbet, and he calls... Turn doesn't change much, unless he had a pair of jacks on the flop. I still bet around 2/3 to get value from people chasing :heart: draw and from worse hands.. River is a total brick (in my eyes at that time), it's strange that he bets into me now out of sudden, but I still decided to call it down..

      Thoughts?

      I think that if river isn't King or Ten or :heart: you can't blame yourself for the call...
      Flop+Turn bet are awesome :f_cool:

      Hello eXtremeACE,

      Could easily bet the flop & turn even bigger, especially if we assume he is a loose opponent.

      But otherwise on the river is kinda trouble-some spot of course that the donks like that. But while there are still some missed draws even and could even come up with Qx I would end up making the crying Call.

      Best Regards.
