      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 6 players) Hero is BTN A:heart: 8:diamond:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 1 fold, BB raises to $0.80, Hero calls $0.40

      BB bets $1.57, Hero calls $1.57

      BB checks, Hero bets $2, BB calls $1.88

      River: 10:spade: ($8.67, 2 players)

      My thoughts:
      Min-reraise pref is wierd of course, but I think I get good ods enough to call here and try to outflop him and get paid, no? And since I floped top pair, I got suspicious of that pot c-bet - does he really bet there on that board that much with AQ, AK? So I call to see what he'd do next, and he checks the turn .... And now I'm pretty much confident that I have the best hand, no? .... Although I think the check behind on turn would have been better, no?

      Hello wlcKeD,

      Preflop: Basically rather fold the hand, your A8 is easily dominated by better aces, even against min-raise. His stack is way too small to overplay him and as well you wont hit often enough.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to say while you the best card you could hit.

      Best regards.
