      Poker Stars, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 7 7
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 raises to $0.20, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.20, 4 folds

      Flop: ($0.47) 6 3 6 (2 players)
      UTG+2 bets $0.33, Hero calls $0.33

      Turn: ($1.13) 4 (2 players)
      UTG+2 bets $0.60, Hero???

      This is one of the spots that I don't know what to do.

      I have an overpair, but is it enough to call twice? or to raise on the flop?

      Which is the best line in this kind of spot, against a regular player?

      Call flop is not good - every and every overcard kills the action here. Raise or fold flop.

      I think I would call turn, fold river. If he would bet turn 0.8$ then I would likely fold turn. Raising flop is one option, but since players would usually not expect you to raise with 6x then I think they would not really fold too many better hands and if they have air then very often they would just c/f on blank turn.

      best regards,
