      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP1:
      $2.00
      MP2:
      $2.00
      MP3:

      $2.13
      BB (Hero):
      $2.07
      UTG2:
      $2.00


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 3, 3.
      2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.08, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.17) T, 5, T (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.30, MP2 calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.77) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.52, MP2 calls $0.52.

      River: ($1.81) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks.

      Final Pot: $1.81.
      Results follow:

      MP2 shows two pairs, aces and tens(A A).
      Hero shows two pairs, tens and threes(3 3).

      MP2 wins with two pairs, aces and tens(A A).

      His range mostly missed the flop, so I went for a check/raise to make him cbet/fold his overcards. I should have just check/folded on the turn though. Is it OK to check/raise the flop should I just check/fold?

      Hello DarkBlade282,

      Rather play those very low PPs for just set-mining mainly instead of trying to overplay those opponents who could even call with just overcards and then hit something.

      Best Regards.
