    Hey everyone,

    Just wanted to question getting the money in here with bottom 2 pair and if it was correct.
    I'm sorry again i dont have any info on this opponent because i decided later to review, i decided to steal on the button here maybe a little loose but i was playing zoom so i felt like the adjustment was correct,post flop i felt like the board texture was relatively kind to me considering i have 2pair blockers to sets.
    So should i treat bottom 2 differently to top 2 pair? would really love ur thoughts

    Hi Nashy,

    preflop is kinda loose but fine imo if blinds are particularly tight - and this should be the case more often than not in zoom games.

    I would b/f turn here since I do not expect people to be x/r for value with a hand any worse than bottom two, especially not in zoom. That leaves us with the hopes of villain bluffing turn which I don't see him doing much once he has x/c on a drawless flop. In addition, the only real draw (43) got there.
