    that early in the tourney, from early position, J 10 off is an auto muck preflop. It's way too early to be playing a marginal hand.

    If you are in the hand, since there is a straight possible on the flop, you really need to worry about it and when they make a large bet on the river, you have to fold 2 pair... becuase any 9 gives them a straight.

      Not a good idea to be posting hands from other sites,I suggest deleting the FT part of the hand history so you dont ruffle any feathers.
      No reads its pretty hard to give you a good evaluation with out them.

      I rarely raise JTos from early position,its just to easy to get into trouble,especially early in a tourney when the maniacs are still in play.I would muck these without reads.Look to tighten your range from UTG to Mid position.Consider anything less than AQ and TT garbage from these positions.

      This is a flop that is very draw heavy(wet board) and you are not going to get some one to fold easily.2 pair often get in trouble when the board connects,since you have so much in the pot and feel pot commited.I would either check this or bet to control the pot.

      Turn:I wouldnt be to worried about the turn card since it is unlikely it would help them out.
      You would have to put them on 97 specifically for them to hit.
      This turn is where your reads come into play.Have you seen him bet like this before on a draw?
      Has he taken this line before to encourage playback?No reads I call and see what happens on the river.If you have reads than it would be easy to make up your mind and put them in a tough spot or fold.
      I dont like the min-raise,it encourages players to spew and you are not strong enough to do that.
      Used to take this line as a way to control the river,cause my thinking was they would check the river hoping I spew but I no longer use that line,since it doesnt work.

      River: Is a fold.Junk hands can get there on this board and its like folding QQ on a Ace high board.
      Yes he might have Ace rag but he isnt folding it.

      Make a point of looking to see what hands connect when you have 2 pair.
      I have often ran into trouble with AA getting stubborn and not thinking why they are calling or raising.
