      River: ($22.72) 6:heart: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $22.72

      Hero shows three of a kind, deuces (2c 2h)
      BB shows three of a kind, fours (4s 4d)

      BB wins with three of a kind, fours (4s 4d)

      The checkraise on the flop looks a bit suspicious but I am ahead of everything except 44, QQ. I think QQ would re-raise preflop so that only leaves 44 ahead whereas I think any two pair hand or Qx hand would get aggressive too.

      Am I right to get the money in as fast as possible?
      Even with the third spade on the turn?
      (I felt if he had two spades I had given him bad enough odds on the flop)

      Spoiler: (Highlight to see)
      I think it was just unlucky he had 44 but I was wondering if there was any obvious sign that he had me so that I could avoid this situation.
