      Hero showed 6 6 and lost (-$6.03 net)


      Different villain to before, but looks like another loose fish (raised 3 of 8 hands and has only 24bb stack).

      Is there a better way to play this situation? Folding preflop feels too weak. Calling is a bad idea because I can't really setmine and I can't call down OOP while a gazillion overcards arrive. But raising basically commits me, and when I do get all in I will either be flipping (against 2 overcards) or dead (against a better pp).

      In hindsight should probably just have folded and wait for a better spot?
