      Preflop: Hero is BU with 7, 6.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, SB calls $0.13, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.35) 2, J, Q (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.25, SB calls $0.25.

      Turn: ($0.85) Q (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.55, SB calls $0.55.

      SB checks, Hero bets $1.10, SB raises to $4.14, Hero calls $3.02(All-In).

      Final Pot: $10.21.

      Results follow:

      SB shows a full-house, fives full of queens(5d 5c).
      Hero shows a flush, queen high(7d 6d).

      SB wins with a full-house, fives full of queens(5d 5c).

      there could have been a queen full house although unlikely. i think i would beat more than half his range. trip queens could do this here.

      Hard to say without reads, I don't see regs check/shove the river too often with trips when you bet thrice into them and there is a possible flush on board, so our 7-high flush looks more like a bluff-catcher than anything else against decent villains.

      Coupled with the fact that it's just incredibly unlikely he's ever bluffing there I think we're in trouble unless he's a fish and even then we might not be doing that good. I usually just dump that against players with a full stack unless I've seen them misbehave beforehand, it's just too strong a line and the relative hand strength of our hand is no good.

      Hope it helps.
