      I don't like your limp with QJs, after just 1 limper. (unless BU/SB/BB are 75/3)
      As played you go broke on te flop. 2pair= nuts and you were in front when the money went in, so yes, it's a bad beat.

      make a note: this player just completes KQo in de SB after 3limpers.

      agreed. without stats: fold preflop.

      Hello Shinerseb,

      welcome to the SSS forum!

      I agree that limping suited broadways after only 1 limper doesn't give you the necessary odds, so I would fold preflop. with 2+ limpers before you I would say it's a nice hand.

      As played, well shoved on the flop, no other way to play your top 2-pair on such a draw heavy board. And yes, the guy went all-in way behind so this can be considered bad beat.

      Just, please don't post results when you post hands on the forum in order to get more objective feedback.

      Regards,
