      Results follow:

      MP2 shows a pair of queens (J Q)
      Hero shows three of a kind, kings (K K)

      Hero wins with three of a kind, kings (K K).


      I really thought about raising this but i thought he could easily have TJ. Im up against an unknown opponent and he could also pay me off with two pair. is flat calling too weak here? tnx!
