That was very unlucky!

Wow, you hit the best possible Full House on the flop!

This guy slow play is quad, With 3 on the board, you cannot think that he have the Q


Best luck on the next game!

A couple of observations.

1 with only 14 bb's you don't have much room to play. Its very close to raise or fold territory.

2 having raised and been called I think you have to shove as you only have just over the pot. Betting means that if you are called you get to the turn and only have 3.3k to shove into a 8.4k pot.

It was unlucky but it does feel like the hand was played with no awareness of stack sizes.

-Shove preflop

-Check back the flop is probably better, most of his range A) doesn't have anything but some (non-high) high cards and B) is drawing dead or near to it. Give him a chance to pair the turn and make a worse full house if he doesn't have a pocket pair.

It doesn't matter whether he would or not. When playing, we want to make the best decision that we can at a given point in time, based on all the information that we have.

In this hand, the best decision that I can make is to shove preflop.

exatly john, there was already a limp, 1700 in the pot before you act, if you are playing 3x raises you should be adding another bb for the limp so with your stack size its a shove regardless what the villain does.

its just one of those hands.

I didn't suggest shoving preflop because it will make him fold (although he may fold the bottom of his range, but we don't want him to fold, we want him to call).

With our stack size I think it's better to get the money in pre, and we may draw some looser than normal calls because it's a spot one might be shoving light over a limper to steal.

+2, calling preflop is by far your biggest mistake in this hand.
