      UTG2 shows two pairs, queens and sixes(Q 5).

      UTG2 wins with two pairs, queens and sixes(Q 5).


      The villain was quite loose and quit passive here. I had no reason to Call his small bet, but Re-raise. I guess should I have raised more, ~$.2 on Flop and pot size on Turn?

      Hello anhvusa,

      Add to full stack. :)

      About the play well if he was really a very loose player then of course the raises are fine. Although I don't really think that you beat much on river to ship it, at the best you might just Call although even then after his line like min-bet/min-bet and bet bigger I might even fold the hand. If the guy really had 9x or whatsoever hand why ain't he protecting it earlier? :)

      Best Regards.
