      SB won a nice pot few hands before this one at another table by slowplaying pocket Ks. I made a bigger bet that I would normally do on the flop because I think it's difficult to play small 2 pair hands and wanted to push them out of the hand asap but when that guy called my flop bet, I made a 'plan' :P
      I knew if I check turn, he checks behind (no flush) and I also check river, because of the relatively nice pot and my unusual play, he will bet/call any raise from me

      shorter: if I slowplay him to the river and I don't have to fold my hand because of a dangerous board, he is pot committed

      any advice except for 'do not slowplay while sss'ing' ?!

      ...not really.

      Except, don't overbet the flop because with 2-pair your goal is to get as much money from your opponents as you can and not to make them fold. So, potsize bet is a way to go in freeplay hands.

      Hi Mishuq,

      Dont overbet the flop just bet Potsized, Bet potsized Turn and shove the RIver

      No need to slowplay since you lose value in an unraised pot!

      Best regards,

      I agree with a potsized bet in general, but I find it more difficult to play made hands on flop with small 2 pairs with either a normal 2/3 pot bet or a potsize one. that was the main reason for the flop bet
