      Hello Sikac,

      Just avoid playing with such hands. :D They too often put you into trouble, you might overplay any pair or even 2pairs. But as played seems to be fine, especially when you went to play such hand.

      What would you have done if the guy shipped the river? :)

      Best Regards.

      I would instant muck the hand as I doubt that he would push with weaker. But still can I raise a little bit his small raise on the river? Do you think is fine as I hopped to get value from a lot of others two pairs.

      Depends how you saw the opponent but most likely seems to be fine.
