      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, tens and sevens(Kh Th).
      SB shows two pairs, queens and sevens(Qc Qh).

      SB wins with two pairs, queens and sevens(Qc Qh).

      - i guess i could have folded pre but MP1 was very loose so i was playing more pots with him

      -how should i have played hand differently??

      -raise pre to isolate him??
      -raise (to 0.3) on flop to see where i'm at??
      -fold turn??
      -and bet on river ok or not??

      Hello qnb07,

      Preflop: I'd rather just fold it here, since the opponent doesn't have full stack.

      As played
      Flop: I don't really like to raise it here, since we aren't planning to go broke against that guy anyways, so facing 3bet in this situation would be bad for us. Therefore going for pot control is likely better.
      Turn: It's kinda close, if he is more kinda passive guy, then I'd rather just fold it here and give up my hand. Otherwise if he is a maniac or something similar, then calling is an option also.

      As played
      River: Likely just Check behind, should be a better option. He may still have better OPs and etc, maybe even better Tx. Not many worse PPs he could have that we get value from.

      Best regards.
