      flop raise was fine? I thought MP didn't have many Ax.

      Turn, what should I do?

      When he pots vs 2 opp isn't good idea to raise. Which worse are going to call you?
      I would consider even to fold flop bc of reverse implied odds (I feel nit when I say that), although you can find a call.

      After you hit 2nd pair you have no choice instead of put the money in.

      What are we raising against on the flop? Even if he has hands like 4x/3x (and I'm not saying he doesn't have Ax because he is likely to have a lot in my opinion), he is going to have a hard time calling with those 4x/3x.
      Usually, against a relatively unknown opponent I'd be folding.

      Turn is fine.
