      MP3: $1.55 (77.5 bb)
      CO: $2.03 (101.5 bb)
      BTN: $1 (50 bb)
      Hero (SB): $4.68 (234 bb)
      BB: $1.97 (98.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $2.19 (109.5 bb)
      MP1: $2.02 (101 bb)
      MP2: $1.04 (52 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 2 2
      5 folds, BTN raises to $0.06, Hero calls $0.05, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.14) 6 3 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.14) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.10, BTN folds

      I called for set value..
      Flop was not anything good, decided to maybe take a stab on the turn.
      I think the A was prolly one of the better hands to bet, if he had called or raised I would give up, it was quite drawy as well, and he does seem to react to my 3bets more than when I first met him.
      He seems to have altered his aproach on me and become alot more passive, he has a 80% fold to 3bet against me.

      Preflop this is one of the rare spots when I will advice a fold preflop with a pocker pair.
      So we are OOP, our opponent will have quite a loose range from BU and we are only 50bb deep so I prefer folding.
      Calling won't be very bad though.

      On the flop check with the intention to check/fold is good.

      On the turn I don't like betting. We have SD value, also the A hits his range and I just prefer checking and trying to check down.

      Fold Preflop like kymupa said.
      Flop is also a check/fold like kymupa said. You should recognize that when the board is paired and your pair is below the lowest card, your equity is really poor. Against a hand like AK, you only have 60% equity. This is because if the board double pairs, your bottom pair will be counterfeited. So even a hand like 78 beats your hand if the Turn brings another 3 cos his hand would be 76633 while your hand would now be 66332
