      Although, I would play it differently, I like the way you played it. especially, the flop call.

      I would c/r though.

      mmh against unknown I personally would also prefer to bet in first as nttflox did. The two pair looks nice but is vulnerable.

      O.k. there is a rainbow flop some gutshot possibilities and the Q. Most worried I would be about hands like Qx which could make a higher two pair.

      So I wouldn't like to give villain any possible freecard, for sure willing to get broke if no absolute ugly situation appears.

      But for sure c/r is a way to play it here also, I think it's a question of preferences and of course of reads we have.

      It is totally fine to play this hand as it was played by nttflox. I just said that I play it differently and I have a reason for that) I simply c/r my draws in this spot, so I would c/r with my made hands on a dry board (2pair+) or given some other circumstances. For the balance))

      But this is not a standard play. I demand some reads, of course, and when I see that c/r is not very suitable, I would bet it straightforward.
