      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      €0.02/€0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      BB = (€2.12)
      MP1 = (€2.69)
      MP2 = (€1.23)
      MP3 = (€7.89)
      CO = (€3.95)
      BU = (€2.98)
      SB (Hero) = (€6.85)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K, A.
      2 folds, MP3 raises to €0.10, 2 folds, Hero raises to €0.55, BB folds, MP3 calls €0.45.

      Flop: (€1.15) T, J, 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets €0.75, MP3 raises to €1.55, Hero calls €0.80.

      Turn: (€4.25) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets €1.85, Hero calls €1.85.

      River: (€7.95) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets €1.70, Hero calls €1.70.

      Final Pot: €11.35.

      Results follow:
      Hero shows high card ace(K A).
      MP3 shows high card queen(7 Q).

      Hero wins with high card ace(K A).

      I think the flop was the most marginal play I made during that hand, calling the minraise with a gutshot and 2 overcards.

      On the turn I hit another diamond which also gives me the nut flush draw, I check/call because the pot's already big and I don't feel like dealing with a bigger pot with my draw but I don't think can fold.

      The river's a complete blank but his bet was so small compared to the pot size that I was okay with paying him off which might've been straight up dumb play.

      Hello elda420,

      That's really OMG hand, good example how not to play your hand. :) CB the flop and once you get raised you should rather give up the hand and that's pretty much it. You don't have implied odds for your GS! Nor you can't be sure if overcards is an out. Bet/Fold the flop and that's pretty much it.

      Best Regards.
