      Hello Tombic,

      Preflop: If you have difficulties laying down 2pair type of hands or even some TP type of hand then rather don't steal with such a hand and just fold it.

      As played
      Postflop: There is no way I am going to continue on turn, while a draw completed as you said and of course a lot better 2pairs are possible. Just Bet/Fold it and that's it. Although I would do it a bit bigger maybe like $0,30. With smaller bet you might induce to bluff.

      Best regards.
