      Results follow:

      CO shows three of a kind, jacks(J J).
      Hero shows two pairs, aces and queens(A Q).

      CO wins with three of a kind, jacks(J J).
      Hero wins with two pairs, aces and queens(A Q).

      I thought he could go broke with worse two-pair. I thought he couldn't have AK or a set because he just flatted preflop. Did I play the hand correctly?

      Hello DarkBlade282,

      The problem on the river is that Tx also completed and you give him really tough time to call you with a lot worse. Although whilst he has only ~50bb I'd play the same way.

      Best Regards.
