After he just called my smaller than standard 3-bet i knew i was ahead, at this point im thinking he has something like 8's or 9's. After he min raises me on the flop im awear it can indicate strength at these limits but it can also be a tard raise, maybe even he has a flash drew, AJ or KJ, i feel he'd raise more with KJ or AJ. Folding or calling the min raise i feels a mistake the flush drew may get there or maybe the dreaded A or K will come, i really only see one option here and thats to 3-bet all-in. What do you think? Impossible to get away from?

Known players:

BU = (\$5.37)
SB = (\$6.24)
BB(Hero) = (\$5.00)
MP2 = (\$5.37)
MP3 = (\$5.00)
CO = (\$2.65)

Preflop: Hero is BB with Q , Q .
3 folds, BU raises to \$0.20, SB folds, Hero raises to \$0.55, BU calls \$0.35.

Flop: (\$1.12) J , 3 , 5 (2 players)
BU raises to \$1.50, Hero raises all-in to \$4.45, BU calls \$2.95.

Turn: (\$10.02) 5 (0 players)
BU gets uncalled bet back.

River: (\$10.02) A (0 players)
BU gets uncalled bet back.

Final Pot: \$7.07.

Results follow:

Hero shows two pairs, queens and fives(Q Q :diamond .
BU shows a full-house, jacks full of fives(J J).

BU wins with a full-house, jacks full of fives(J J :club .

You seriously asking this question? In a 6 handed game, unavoidable. You got coolered. Happens all the time in 6 handed games.

No need to get angry. No you played the hand great. With the flushdraw on board and he's betting in to you, nothing diffrent to do.
