      I think you can´t show profit by limping A2 from MP, so it should be fold pf.
      If you really want to play it, you can raise it, but even I who is playing 35/30 style pf would fold most of the times that spot.
      Tight is very often right nl 10 and lower limits.
      I´d b/c river against that player, since he might c/r me with worse two pair hands or bluffs, but I don´t think you´re ahead 50% to shove river for value.

      Hello churchilland,

      I am rather Bet/Folding the river. :) You kinda overplayed your 2pairs here. There ain't gonna be many 2pair hands in their range, plus it's a freeplay pot where you will rarely see any bluffs. You don't even know the opponent to make the Call profitable.

      But obviously limping preflop is just horrible play.

      Best Regards.
