      Ok to take a shoot at this position with this hand??

      I was in 2 minds before i raised..

      Once i hit my 2 pair i was sure i was ahead at this point... however if a Q or J hits on the turn then i might be in trouble...

      My position on this hand was to raise flop, if called evaluate the turn, if a Q or J comes then check / fold to a bet..

      bet a bit more on the flop... 4$ or so for protection.

      stealraising KTo on the button is not so bad... depends on how bad UTG is, and how aggressive the players in the blinds are. but normally at this limit, it's ok now and again.

      Congrats chenny on platinum:)
      It is better to open from KTo than just call pf.
      I would also make flop 4$ bet, since you want to build bigger pot with your two pair, although UTG would fold here 80%, since he has small pp.
