could easily have a 6. the turn makes it look like 26 or 67 trying to value raise you.

fold 35h preflop, though.

yeah but it was soooooted lol thought id see a flop and maybe hit part of straight or some spades....just thought id pay the 10 and see what happens after the flop but youre right bad preflop decision leads to things like this

Id have thought an ace, but hes in big blind so he could easily have a 2, so i think he has str8, specially with the min raise.

Like Joose said, fold preflop. You have position sure, but theres never going to be enough money in the pot to chase potential straights/flush.

aint no $50 dollar bankroll anymore ..... at this point it was more like around a dollar that ended up at zero....won .20 in $750 freeroll that i took to .01/.02 limit ring table got that up to around 2 and went to .01/.02 no limit ring table and now at around 5

i agree shoulda folded preflop but since im in the hand and hit 2 pair what now?

You have bottom 2 pair on a drawing(ish) board, I dont think you can slow play this. Bet bigger on the flop and take it down there. Given the limits your playing at I think he would have just called you down anyway.
