      I never know how to play low-mid overpairs. Maybe i should have just folded because of the danger the fd represents additionally, but what bout if there was no fd on the flop? Should i fold or call?

      Hi Sipox,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: These spots are very dependent on our opponents.

      For example villain is cbetting into two players and that looks like a strong hand. We also have a LOT of turn cards that are very bad for our hand. So yes, folding, against your average tight 2nl player should be a good option on that flop.

      However, if villain is looser than calling is fine.
