Default Low PP in LP with no action

SB actually, but I'm still late to act pf, where my question lies. If either guy calls I'm OOP, but what if this were on the button, or if I were BB and SB just completed, as the only other player in the pot?

Anybody wanna tell me to raise here? I felt like I should, but wanted to ask before I started doing it a lot.

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t30 (8 handed) converter

Button (t790)
Hero (t2220)
BB (t690)
UTG (t790)
UTG+1 (t1215)
MP1 (t770)
MP2 (t685)
CO (t840)

Preflop: Hero is SB with 6[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 6[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">5 folds</font>, Button calls t30, Hero completes, BB checks.

Flop: (t90) J[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], T[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 3[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(3 players)</font>
Hero checks, BB checks, <font color="#CC3333">Button bets t80</font>, Hero folds, BB folds.

Final Pot: t170

You played it fine.

I don't like raising preflop with hands like these in level 1-2. Complete and try to flop a set and do some real damage. Take note of what Button is doing. If he habitually limps you will be able to take more than 30 chips from him later on.

I might raise preflop with your stack to 120-150ish but since you didn't definitely get away from this flop.

I think its fine. Blinds are too low to risk stealin their blinds. I play for set value with low pp like these in early levels. Raise and steal later when blinds mean something.
