      i was just taking a stab at heads up play, played some games with a minimum stack, doubled up 3 times and sat down deep on a 4th table, knowing that in reality im only playing 2 SSS BI.

      anyway, this hand comes up

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (2 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $110.55
      SB(Hero):
      $53.35


      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, J.
      Hero raises to $1.50, BB raises to $5.00, Hero calls $3.50.

      Flop: ($10) J, Q, 7 (2 players)
      BB bets $7.00, Hero raises to $20.00, BB raises to $105.55, Hero calls $28.35.

      Turn: ($163.9) T (0 players)
      Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      River: ($163.9) 2 (0 players)
      Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $135.55.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, queens and jacks(Q J).
      BB shows a pair of aces(A A).

      Hero wins with two pairs, queens and jacks(Q J).

      checked in equilator and he was ahead on the flop.

      any thoughts?

      I would never fold top 2pair HU on the flop, his range is way too large.

      no he was very cool we were chatting while playing because i used to see him in FR games and he said he has loads of HUD stats on me.

      he wasnt too happy about it, i asked him to check with an odds calculator he said he was slightly ahead and i said sorry i could not have folded it.

      a few hands later i was holding KK and we had 4 preflop raises and he shoved with AK and i stacked him again. for the 3rd time :)

      Only question you should ask yourself if your call pf is good or not. this mainly depends on his 3betting % pf.

      Postflop it's an easy go broke on a 3bet pot with top two.
