      Final Pot: $20,25

      Results follow (highlight to see):

      Hero shows (Jd 9d)

      UTG1 wins with three-of-a-kind, queens (Qs Qc)

      If this was limped pot I'm definitly folding to turn raise, but since it's minraised pot and minraise on turn I thought 2 pair should be good. Question is could he do it with TP/overpair kind of hands, as he is still unknown. What should I do in this kind of situations?

      Hello Oly0909,

      Somehow I don't really like it, there are still like straight which beat us and as well even sets and so on. Therefore I'd rather just fold to the min-raise unless I know the opponent. More often I'd take this as a freeplay. If you have hard time folding 2pairs postflop then rather just fold it preflop.

      Best regards.

      I don't have any problems in folding 2 pair hands if I know it's a right play. In limped pots you've taught me it's a right play so I would fold it without thinking. I just didn't know how to think of this because it's minraised, and now I know that as well :f_p:
