Hand converted by PokerTracker 4
Hero (BTN): 52.5 BB
SB: 74 BB
BB: 88 BB
UTG: 50 BB
Turn:(12.5 BB, 2 players) Q♠ BB bets 6 BB, Hero raises to 18 BB, BB raises to 66 BB, Hero calls 28.5 BB and is all-in
River:(105.5 BB, 2 players) 7♣
my question is if I overplayed my two pair. I was convinced to play as I did by the size bet. it didn't seem that he had more then one pair. as it turned out he had just KJ with one card to come and I won the pot. I wanted to know if my play was correct and if not what is the best way to handle a situation like this. do you rely on bet sizing as a tell?

Once we have a board with KQT in it it is time to take a showdown line, not a value line. Which means if we can't get to showdown cheap, we abort mission. Results don't matter. We want to pick lines that are best for the situation and V tendencies and in this situation we just want to get to showdown cheap. Not sure what bet size tell you picked up on, but if you had seen him play like that before with only TP then that would be a good read. But w/o seeing him first play like that we don't have a tell and have to give credit to his bet on this board.

re: Poker & $2 NLHE 6-max: allin by the turn with two pair
just replayed it a few times more. when i played the hand it seemed to me that he had nothing more then a pair but you are right. I should have just called. just needed a double check on this one.

I'm a little late, but I will add my $0.02
First and foremost, do not post results in the OP. The results aren't important, and the feedback you get may be biased.
So preflop is fine. Flop is where things get tricky... We can float here, but I think raising is a better play. We have 2nd pair, and our opponent is donking into us. I don't like flatting here at all. Donk bets are usually weak hands, draws, and people trying to set their price to continue, and to find out "where they are". Your flat call looks weak, because it is weak. So, if you are going to continue, I think raising is better. If the dude just moves in, we can fold easily.
On the turn, before reading results, I was thinking V may have AJ. it is Def possible. I think raising the turn is kind of asking for trouble, and when he RR you, man, I don't like your hand too much after that.
You ran into the absolute best case scenario here. I think you overplayed the hand a bit... but it's not horrific or anything.
