      I absolutely hate my lines here. I gotta get aggressive on this flop with my PP right?

      What's the best way to play such a hand?

      I think your line is quite good: c/c flop and turn and then evaluate on the river.

      Would you still call a river bet though? Up to how much?

      I would fold on the river unless his bet is really small? 66 is no good imo.

      It would be better to be aggressive if you were the preflop aggressor I think. If I would be your opponent and somebody limp calls and gets aggresive on this flop, I know he has some low to medium pocket pair. My reaction: fold or shove/raise high pairs and overcards if I think my opponent is capable of folding a pp. With high cards I'd only need 20-25% fold equity.
      Basically, he will almost always fold his worse hands and continue with hands that beat you.

      This is always a crappy spot to be in. You can't really bet. You can call, but not raise. So you're either gonna be behind or gonna get sucked out on 25-30% of the time.
      Being oop totally sucks in this hand!
      I like to fold on the turn (or even on the flop) and just wait for better spots to win moniez.
