      He's pretty tight and minraises UTG. Does this scream QQ+/AK? How should I react? He could have QQ, but would he call my reraise on the flop and then bet small on the turn? I'm not so sure...

      nh imo.

      I dont see any other way to play your 2pair here. Its true, he doesnt raise much, but youve only seen 93 of his hands, so his stats arent set in stone.

      btw, a minraise isnt considered a raise by many ppl here

      2pair isnt the nuts and you will sometimes lose in this spot, but on NL5 this hand is close to the nuts and you will win way more than you lost here in the long run.

      MP2 is also very far from tight. 42 10 3.5 93 is limpy aggressive just begging to give you his money with any other A (apart from ak) here. No way I could get away from two pair vs a 42 VPIP on an otherwise dry board.
