      Hey, I'm wondering if my two pair on the flop here are strong enough to go all in here. Early reads were that the opponent is loose and aggressive but not stupid.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:spade: , 8:club:
      3 folds, MP3 calls $0.10, CO folds, BU calls $0.10, SB folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.35) 8:diamond: , 6:diamond: , K:club: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0.35, BU folds, Hero raises to $1.40, MP3 raises to $4.55, Hero raises to $9.90 (All-In), MP3 calls $5.08 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Turn: ($19.61) J:diamond:
      River: ($19.61) Q:heart: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $19.61

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two pairs, kings and eights (Ks 8c)
      MP3 shows a flush, king high (Kd Td)

      MP3 wins with a flush, king high (Kd Td)

      It's fine, lots of draws out there he could play like that if he's loose and aggressive, and he'd almost always open raise with 88/66/KK from the hijack, so unless he's getting tricky you're ahead of everything with already lots of dead money, no reason to fold there whatsoever. NH.

      Hope it helps.
