      Preflop: Hero is BB with 6, 7.
      MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, CO folds, BU calls $0.02, SB calls $0.01, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.08) 2, 7, 6 (4 players)

      Turn: ($3.94) J (2 players)


      River: ($3.94) K (2 players)


      Final Pot: $3.94.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, sevens and sixes(6 7).
      MP3 shows three of a kind, twos(2 2).

      MP3 wins with three of a kind, twos(2 2).

      Opponent was an obvious NIT, is there any chance folding to a shove with my 2pair in that situation?

      I couldn't read much of ranges because he was limping

      nit's openlimping range is often small pairs only :f_frown:

      as played you can fold to the shove, you're only hoping for 72 (not in range) or AA really :D don't beat anything with top two :f_eek:

      Hello Tiltmeifucan,

      If it's true that he is a nit you will more likely see sets there to what I'd be rather inclined to fold my hand. Vs unknown or loose guys I'd be happy to go broke. Nits limping range mainly is towards PPs.

      But what you should also be doing here is to Bet the flop bigger. :)

      Best Regards.
