      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q:club: , 6:club:
      2 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB folds, MP2 calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.70) 3:diamond: , 2:heart: , 3:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, MP2 calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($1.70) 2:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00, MP2 raises to $1.39 (All-In).

      River: ($5.09) 8:heart: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $5.09

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two pairs, threes and deuces (Qc 6c)
      MP2 shows a flush, ace high (Ah Jh)

      MP2 wins with a flush, ace high (Ah Jh)

      Been playing very tight and hadnt stolen for a long time. Table is often folding to strong play.

      Smelt weakness and represented overpair. I even put him on the flush draw. Turn bet was supposed to protect the pot from a flush draw... but I forgot to check villains stack! Villain couldnt cover my protection bet and thus got better odds on his draw and called, nor could there be a river bluff if the river was a good card.

      Bit sad really. Overcommitted to a bluff that could never work because the Villain's stack wasnt long enough to bluff :(
