      Hero shows two pairs, queens and jacks(Q J).
      MP1 shows a pair of threes(A T).

      Hero wins with two pairs, queens and jacks(Q J).

      Is this fine or should I just limp. I have confidence in my post flop play so I think this is worth a risk. Well my biggest question was what do to on the flop? What s the best line here to take. I mean I played it simple. Any comments appreciated.

      Hello Sikac,

      Nah, your play is totally fine. Both opponents even have a full stack there so I don't mind such a play. The only problem here is actually BU against I might even sometimes rather limp in but of course if he isn't that loose then your play is fine. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
