      MP2 shows two pairs, jacks and tens(T J).

      MP2 wins with two pairs, jacks and tens(T J).


      On flop i bet big because of draws and because of the possibility he has a draw. on turn i checked with the intention to fold ... but did call :(
      I was thinking i had a good chance to be ahead, or if he had a small pair i still had 6 outs.

      As a general rule on this flop i should just give up?

      Hey Bonecore,

      Preflop - you should only 3bet AKs vs MP if he's a fish, in which case it is fine.

      On the flop I'd probably just check/fold. It's a bad board for you and there is no guarantee MP2 is going to fold very often on the flop after he already called a 3bet.

      As played I'd just c/f turn. You might have 6 outs, but probably don't have the best hand very often.
