summary: I AM BLUFMASTER52.
i have $56 at this point and as i remember im down about $40, the guy i tangle with starts this hand with $64
PREFLOP: I call BB $1 with J5, should of folded here but playing a tight table and tight BB i call, hoping to at least bluff the flop.
BB min raises $1
I call $1

FLOP: great flop for me i hit 2 pair, the pot at this point is $5.50, he is first to act he bets $4, i raise another $10 to $14 which makes the pot $19.50, he goes all in for $58 i have $36 left and make a quick call.

TURN: board pairs the only other card that doesnt give me a boat
RIVER: Blank for me his Ace plays and he takes the pot $118.45

some of these figures may be inaccurate but heres a screen shot to clear things up

Yuk. Fold pre-flop. :)

You can raise to attempt to steal the blinds with position, and fold to the inevitable 3bet. Flop is fine considering stack sizes.

Oh yea, make sure you have the full buyin for these tables in future, alternatively play nl$50.

yep i agree totally, just a bad spot all round really, the two things that affected this hand you mentioned:

not enough cash, and calling instead of folding or raising. thanks

Wow just fold p/f. If you are going to do something with this then raise p/f. If he then 3-bets you it's an easy fold. I still think it's possible to get away from this hand on the flop as it's an unraised pot and either of these 2 guys could have a set of 6's at this point. Easier said than done when you have 2 -pair but still possible.

yea i think i agreed already, but yea suppose i could of got away from this hand but why limp then fold 2 pair, and especially as the guy i was against was making all kinds of bad plays and desicions, hey he even made the wrong one here... but ah well..
