      Hi,


      It's probably no big deal preflop either way, as isolating with smallish pocket pair will often yield trouble on a very loose table.

      On the flop they all seem so bad that they're all liable to go broke with stuff like 87/spades/9x or an overpair in BU's case, so you're not folding. If BU isn't as bad as he looks he might have been trying to build a slightly bigger multiway pot with 66 to get exactly into that situation, but it's a long shot really.


      Hope it helps.
