tough spot with 2 pair.

Pre flop
Called pre flop because of position and is a hand that plays well post flop.

Just flatte the c bet because i had the weak kicker and its not the kind of board texture where i want to bloat the pot and potentially have to fold to a big bet OTT

Looking back i could definately have raised this card but i thought betting twice here his range was quite strong even though the bet sizing could be weak or he could have flopped the straight and be betting for value here.

Not a good river card for me at all since all his pairs with a 10 got there but the bet sizing was so small that i had to call really?

Hi ads!

Without a read on the villain, I'm often folding preflop here. It is playable, but it is the type of hand that can quickly land us in trouble. We wont be drawing to the nut flush. Getting a strong straight draw will require a 9 and a 10 on the board. And if we flop a pair, especailly a Q, we are going to be handcuffed by our marginal kicker.

As played, yeah, I would consider raising the turn. You have top pair and now a flush draw. Calling the river is good since his bet was so small.

GL and have fun at the tables!
