      Just moved upto NL5. Following 25BI BRM. Played about 4k hands here.

      BTN: $2 (40 bb)
      SB: $3.07 (61.4 bb) (20/12) 50 hands
      Hero (BB): $14.86 (297.2 bb) (30/27) 68 hands
      MP: $5.07 (101.4 bb)
      CO: $4.91 (98.2 bb) (29/24) 66 hands

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J K
      MP folds, CO raises to $0.12, BTN folds, SB calls $0.10, Hero calls $0.07

      I could have squeezed here, as his fold to 3 bet was 100% (2 hands). Was getting good odds to call, so called.

      Flop: ($0.36) K J Q (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.20, CO raises to $0.75, SB folds, Hero raises to $14.74 and is all-in, CO calls $4.04 and is all-in

      Is this somewhere i can go all in with?

      Turn: ($9.94) 2 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($9.94) 7 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Two pairs is a strong hand but is a lot weaker on a 3straight board. I prefer bet/call Flop and check/shove blank Turns.

      I think vs a get-it-in range of 2pairs/sets/combodraws/straights you are faring fairly badly. I prefer to look to get it in on a blank turn where our equity vs such a range will increase.
