      Imo it's very hard to play small pocket pairs if you're not EXTREMELY good post flop, just save yourself some money and purely setmine with them.

      Hello cutegoldfish,

      A bit overplayed, I'd rather not try to play fancy with just TP, therefore rather 2nd barrel the turn card or as played then just give it up. Otherwise I'd give it up on river, ain't worth to make hero calls on those kind of limits while we have only so small PP.

      Best regards.
