      Hero showed J J and lost (-$48.40 net)
      MP2 showed 9 Q and won $94.55 ($46.15 net)


      I doubt his hand but now I think there were too many 2 pair if he had loose range.
      If so, even betting flop is not good?

      Hi Gonchan,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Unless we've seen the opponent get out of line (bluffing, semibluffing) I would opt for bet/folding or bet/call a small bet and folding to further action.

      As played we don't even beat Tx anymore and we can't really expect to have any fold equity with our 2x shove.

      So the question would be: what worse hands can play like this?

      For value he can have KJ, Qx, Tx, sets, even J8.
