      BB won with two pair 3 8

      I think I should have raised pre-flop, or at least folded. Was calling pre-flop the bad decision here?

      Hi Ferris,

      Limping preflop is definitely a mistake there. We should always look to isolate the weak limpers with our stronger hands. If, for somer eason, you are not comfortable isolating that hand simply fold it.

      As played you should bet the flop and not wait for other to put money in there for you.
