      Raise pre flop , charge them to see flop.

      if you dun wanna get too aggressive preflop , then ch/f F T , call a reasonable bet on River

      hey.
      Dont raise it prf cause fish on BB will call u most of the time and u dont have a hand at all against two ppl.
      I most likely dont bet on that flop cause u cant expect to get called by worser and u need to give it up to any aggression. I would most likely pot on a river and call a raise. I am not sure does these nl25 players call worser if u reraise.

      I do usually raise similar situations but with 2 stations and this hand I don't like a preflop raise very much. They'll both call and I end up with a big pot and no hand.

      On the flop I don't like checking back 2nd pairs in such a situation, but I should have bet a bit more. These two could have just about anything and I like to get one bet in and then c/f the rest, works often enough.

      Yes, I do just c/f all the way sometimes, but I think these two are fishy enough to call with 22, 33, some 4s, weaker 5s and A-highs so I don't think a flop bet is out of the question.

      And btw the fish in BB is me :f_p:

      But very often they take a stab with a minbet or something and I can't really call, and they could be doing it with all sorts of hands.

      I should have bet more there, not just half pot, I'd usually bet like .65, dunno why I just bet half...

      preflop check is standard.
      Don´t really see j5s ahead their range that you should raise oop on the bb with garbage
      I would played flop the same way. b/c river is fine, since he can raise there worse 5x hands and sometimes also some bluffs although mostly his raising range is for value
