      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $3.67
      UTG2:
      $2.06
      MP1:
      $6.35
      MP2:
      $1.70
      MP3:
      $5.99
      CO:
      $3.32
      BU(Hero):
      $3.79
      SB:
      $2.90


      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, Q.
      UTG2 calls $0.05, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.05, MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, 4 folds, CO calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.17) 5, 6, 5 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $1.00, CO calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($3.17) 5 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $2.29(All-In), CO calls $1.82.

      River: ($7.28) 2 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $7.28.
      Results follow:

      CO shows four of a kind, fives(8 5).
      Hero shows a full-house, fives full of queens(Q Q).

      CO wins with four of a kind, fives(8 5).



      How do I avoid this kind of situations in NL5?
      Clearly this would not have happened in say, NL10 or NL25.

      I feel my shove there was pretty standard, only reasonable hand to beat me and call to my bet preflop (even though he didnt have the implied odds) is 66.


      edit: table has cap on stack thats why im that low.my mistake for playing there though.

      Hey!

      Well played. There's no way to avoid that :tongue: I mean, just think about his overall range and not this specific hand. He's gonna pay you off with 6x, 77, 88, 99, TT, JJ. He rarely has a 5 here.

      Bad luck ;(


      NH!
