      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, Q.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BU folds, SB calls $0.25, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.7) Q, Q, 8 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $21.2.

      Results follow:

      SB shows a full-house, eights full of queens(8s 8h).
      Hero shows three of a kind, queens(Ad Qh).

      SB wins with a full-house, eights full of queens(8s 8h).

      i figured that i was going all in against this guy with vpip 34. and given he was rather aggressive, instead of re-raising and isolating myself against better hands, i decided to call right to the river, where i was all-in. i expected him to have holdings like overpairs or a worse Q, and an unlikely full house.

      I like most it =) Against an aggressive player, you're better off just calling him down.
      He can't have much on this board and there should be a decent portion of bluffs in his range.
      HOWEVER, I'd rather shove on the turn myself, because the board has gotten a lot more wet and there are many more hands that could have some equity against you. (I assume he only continues firing with some equity. If he's a totla crayz maniac, then calling down to the river is the best play, becasue he's gonna have a bunch of complete air)
