      obviously had many difficult hands today.. when mp2 called turn i pretty much guessed i was beat.. what u think?

      Known players:

      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.68 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q:spade: , Q:heart:
      MP2 raises to $1,75, MP3 folds, CO raises to $6,00, BU folds, Hero calls $5,75, BB folds, MP2 calls $4,25.

      Flop: ($18,50) J:heart: , 9:heart: , 8:spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($18,50) 8:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks, CO bets $18,50, Hero calls $18,50, MP2 calls $18,50.

      River: ($74,00) 5:heart: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $25,80 (All-In), CO calls $1,22 (All-In), Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $76,44

      Results follow (highlight to see):

      CO shows a pair of eights (Ad Kc)

      MP2 wins with four of a kind, eights (8c 8h)

      I would 4bet/push preflop.

      As played on the turn I would bet/fold.
      You can't fold on the river with these odds IMO (no point in calling turn in such case)

      And I'm pretty sure you should make a note on CO for slowplaying his set on that board and betting pot on the turn when he hold the uncrackable nuts.

      (it was MP2 who slowplayed)
      yeah the preflop 4bet is a good option. but at the same time i have noticed that players like the CO, who are very passive preflop, often show up with AA,KK when they preflop 3bet.. but, hmm, dont know..

      I think 4-bet might be good there, since also at some times you get A or K high flops and have to c/f
      I´d lead out on that flop and go broke or if checked then b/f or b/c turn seems also fine idea
