      Hi all

      This is from my first session at NL5, moved up from NL2 at FTP.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG1:
      $9.46
      UTG2:
      $5.14
      MP1:
      $5.97
      MP2:
      $5.12
      MP3:
      $8.36
      CO:
      $1.00
      BU:
      $5.67
      SB:
      $5.82
      BB(Hero):
      $5.00


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8, K.
      CO posts deadblind, 5 folds, CO checks, BU folds, SB calls $0.03, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.15) J, K, J (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.10, CO folds, SB calls $0.10.

      Pretty standard I think, normally they fold.

      Turn: ($0.35) J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.25, SB raises to $0.78, Hero calls $0.53.

      Now I have a full hose, so bet again. I'm not sure what this raise meant. Should I just have put it all in right here?

      River: ($1.91) Q (2 players)
      SB bets $4.89, Hero calls $4.07.

      Makes a large donk bet. I really couldn't put him on too many hands. A quad is obviously unlikely so I figured I had to call.

      Final Pot: $10.87.

      Results follow:

      SB shows four of a kind, jacks(Jh 7d).
      Hero shows a full-house, jacks full of kings(8d Kd).

      SB wins with four of a kind, jacks(Jh 7d).

      flop and turn are fine, but every time when someone is overshoving river with trips on the flop,t hey tend to have quads, so I think you can fold your hand, since best case you´re only splitting
