    How to play a low overpair to the board?

    One of the situations that gets me into trouble many times, is the following.

    Suppose you are in a MTT, middle stages, and you get an medium pair, let's say 66. You might do a small preflop raise or even limp.

    Suppose you wil play against 1 or 2 other players and the flop is for example 244.

    What is the best to proceed when you have a medium to short stack?

    Considering you are up against one other player. Did they raise the bet, or just check. What else is on the board. If they just checked then I would raise half my stack. But that is just my opinion.

    never get too involved in a pot with small to mid pairs. Way too many over value them smaller pairs and play them like they have the nuts LOL

    For starters I try NOT to limp into pots, and 66 is a hand I would play in position so it all depends on the pre flop, if im last to act and its folded around or limped around to me I would raise 3x BB and +1 for every limper, this would pretty much get rid of the small hands and marginal hands that would hold cards like 2's and 4's, so with an small over pair I would value bet after the flop but a raise or something would throw up a red flag to watch out here.

    I have trouble explaining how I play or think, trying it out here lol

    I don't play small to mid pairs in the middle of a tournament unless I have position. Even if I have position most of the time I fold them after the flop because there are 3 over cards.
