      UTG1 shows two-pair, aces and sixes (Ad Ac)
      Hero shows (Qh Qd)

      UTG1 wins with two-pair, aces and sixes (Ad Ac)

      I thought it was preety standard to get it in against the min raise, because it usualy meens a bad hand or a fishs value line.

      Hello BigAl123456,

      Actually thats very close against that kind of opponent. If we take a look at his 4% PFR, which is really small. Of course we don't have enough hands but still I'd say it's very strong. And often times also min-raise and then raising very big indicates to a very strong hand. I might even find a safer to fold it here and take it as a trap and let it be.

      Best regards.
