      I'm up against a limper and I hit 2 pair. I guess both my cbets could be a bit bigger. Is it okay to shove the turn?

      Hey MarliesB,

      Preflop + flop are played fine.

      Turn cbet for value is good. Facing a raise the situation becomes super borderline. You have bottom two pair only and the turn completes a possible straight. Folding is likely fine vs CO raise.

      The reason why your play is not that bad is because CO looks like a fish and there is a possibility he will stack off with a variety of worse Ax hands.
