Standard monster vs. monster

Kinda boring; just a monster vs. monster hand. I didn't realize I won this hand because I saw the 3rd spade hit the river - which paired the turn card.

Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (9 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

Hero (MP3) ($10.48)
CO ($4.29)
Button ($8.65)
SB ($7.42)
BB ($3.64)
UTG ($5.19)
UTG+1 ($5.94)
MP1 ($14.53)
MP2 ($3.80)

Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 2c, 2s
1 fold, UTG+1 bets $0.30, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.30, CO calls $0.30, 3 folds

Flop: ($1.05) Qs, 2h, Js (3 players)
UTG+1 bets $1.05, Hero raises to $2.10, CO raises to $3.99 (All-In), 1 fold, Hero calls $1.89
I flop good. I know that if I smooth call the UTG+1 bet, I'm giving great odds to the CO to draw to the flush and / or straight. However, I don't want to lose UTG+1's cbet. Perhaps I'm too greedy. Therefore, I min raise. The sucky thing about this was the CO's raise to all-in. I'd imagine UTG+1 would be calling here to my min raise if CO hadn't rained on my parade.

Turn: ($10.08) 5c (2 players, 1 all-in)

River: ($10.08) 5s (2 players, 1 all-in)

Total pot: $10.08 | Rake: $0.67

Hero had 2c, 2s (full house, twos over fives).
CO had 10s, 9s (flush, Queen high).
Outcome: Hero won $9.41
When he flipped over his cards, I was very upset. I was not nearly as ahead as I thought I was. He is drawing to 15 cards, or 60%. I dodge the bullet on the turn, narrowing his draw to 14 cards, or 28%. Then, without realizing the 5s pairs the turn card, I write off the hand to bad luck. However, the chips come to me and I'm left checking the hand history to figure out what happened. LOL - running 5's to scoop. NICE!
