      Stats: BB. Hands/VPIP/PFR/AF = 17/41/24/0,8
      MP2 = Hands/VPIP/PFR/AF = 193/21/14/2,1

      Queen on the turn is a bit confusing. Probably at least one of the opponents have a set. But I guess the only way to know is to bet. Since SB is loose-passive fish and may have almost anything and MP2 may have any ace for example there is still a chance that I'm ahead.

      Or should I just fold two-pair in this spot?

      Hey RandomGenerator,

      Nice hand, well played! There's no way to fold 2-pair on the turn just because someone might have a set. That way you will lose heaps of value longterm when they hold an Ax or fish might even show up with something like 75 or whatever. I would also shove this turn if you didn't hit a Q for 2-pair.

      Best regards,

      what do you think of check-raising the turn? maybe it is better, since by pushing I'm actually isolating myself against very many better hands but by checking the turn I can induce bluffs from weaker aces and maybe some middle pairs.

      No we CAN check the Turn to get called by worse on the River if we bet/check/bet s it looks less likely we have a strong hand

      I think weaker aces & other pairs will check/back frequently because Fish & regs will frequently pot control anyway

      Mostly when SB is in the pot, i rather want to be myself
