      $0.05/$0.1 No Limit Holdem
      5 players
      Converted at

      UTG ($2.60)
      CO ($3.67)
      BTN ($5.22)
      SB ($13.40)
      Hero ($21.81)

      Pre-flop: ($0.15, 5 players) Hero is BB K:heart: A:heart:
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.40, 1 fold, Hero raises to $1.30, BTN calls $0.90

      Flop: Q:heart: 8:spade: 8:heart: ($2.65, 2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN goes all-in $3.92, Hero calls $3.92

      Turn: J:spade: ($10.49, 2 players)

      River: T:club: ($10.49, 2 players)

      Final Pot: $10.49

      So was I allowed to call his shove? I have a flush draw, two overcards and a backdoor straight draw, so I have some outs. Pokerstove says, that even if he has a Q I'm ahead, if he has an 8 which is not very likely im an underdog, basicly I think im ahead his range, he might even have a smaller flushdraw..

      He COULD be on an overpair (aces) because some people play it that way (cause 4bet gives the hand away), but I think I would definately call the shove here aswell. You risk being dominated by QQ, but I really think that a typical NL10 villain won't shove the flop with a flopped full house. Same with an 8 (they love slowplay!). Basically, I think he's on a flushdraw or tilt and that it's a good call :P

      Just checked, even if his range is just KK++, I still have my 40% equity. Cant agree with you more about how people at this limit love to slowplay :D

      I'd lead that flop and call if he shoved.

      I think you should conti-bet this flop.
      Its a paired board and is easy to bluff the pot in this situation against 1 opponent .
      Also if you bet you can see if villain re-raises and you may be able to lay it down.(If villain has a Q or 8.)

      there is just one reason to not cbet that flop . and this is to induce a shove so you have to call it but standard would be bet / call
