      I really don't know what I should do after his raise on the flop. Folding right away doesn't seem right to me. Maybe a small re-raise to about 0.70 and then fold? Maybe fold the turn?

      Hi Datalogg,

      PReflop: looks fine

      Postflop: With bottom two pair in a limped pot I would prefer to bet/fold there.

      Why would a fold not look right to you? What would the reraise achieve, what the reason be?

      Generally speaking even in a raised pot on such a board bottom two pair is not a great hand at all.

      As a side note, when you leave a reply, don't forget to hit the advise judge to take another look button.
