      Any thoughts about this hand? I realize I did not completely follow the Starting Hands Chart, and that I betting too little on the flop (if I should've at all). Should I have just checked? And was calling the villain's all-in reasonable with my two-pair?

      I just entered the table a few rounds earlier, so I didn't have much information about my opponents.

      Hello dollarihai,

      Preflop: Standard raise should be 5xBB with one limper before you if you want to raise the hand.

      As played
      Flop: Well, the Cbet is way too weak. You are just giving great odds for any kind of draw. I'd definitely CBet it bigger ~$0,16 at least.
      Turn: Well, I doubt that you beat much after the Check/Shove here. Straight is possible/flush is possible/sets/better 2pairs. I don't really see what kind of hands we beat, I'd Bet/Fold it.

      Best regards.
