This is a discussion on $2.20 NLHE MTT Bounty: Caught 2 pair in the BB within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Hand Analysis section; 888 Poker - 4000/8000 Ante 1000 NL - Holdem - 9 players

BTN: 30.25 BB (VPIP: 17.86, PFR: 8.00, 3Bet Preflop: 18.18,
With the formatting it's difficult to tell what your hand and suits actually are. I'm assuming we have T7 suited? But I don't know what the suit is.
Anyway I'm fine with how you played it pre. On the flop I'd be fairly inclined to go for a check raise now since I believe the board is pretty wet, we'd have a LOT of hand we'd want to semibluff check raise here, and the board favors our range. We can get it in pretty easily with overpairs, as well as some draws, and be in good shape.
I also don't think our hand is SO strong as to need to be slowplayed by any means.
As played, I'm glad we are just getting it in on the turn - I think the stack depths in play make this pretty much mandatory, so nice job there.

Can't really tell what flop is as far as suits go with this post.
I like defending in the BB with these types of hands.
I don't mind the flop flat with intentions of getting it in on the turn.

yeah sorry formatting went weird, was T spade & 7 spade. Think the other bad formatting is clubs, so a flop draw there.
With 24BB I am certainly only entering the pot being happy to get it all in.
Lost the hand but not fussed by that, thought it was the pretty much the right play, glad to see I wasn't too far off the mark.

I think you played it perfectly. Defended a suited, playable hand, called 2/3 pot with two pair and got your 24BBs in on the turn. Nothing I would've done differently. Since you said you lost, it was just bad luck, don't think you could've escaped it

I doubt I'd have played much differently. Maybe I'd get more in on the flop but either way, def want a/i by the turn. Did you win the hand?
