      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.85 by

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:diamond: , Q:club:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, BU folds, SB calls $0.07, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.18) A:spade: , Q:diamond: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.1, SB raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.10.

      Turn: ($0.58) 8:heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.2, Hero raises to $0.60, SB raises to $1.52 (All-In), Hero calls $0.92.

      River: ($3.62) 8:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $3.62

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ad Qc)
      SB shows a full-house, deuces full of eights (2d 2c)

      SB wins with a full-house, deuces full of eights (2d 2c)

      Could I have got away from this, or is it a cooler?

      Question 1: should I have folded to his re-raise all-in on the turn? The board is so dry I am only realistically behind to 88 / 22. On the other hand his shove over my raise seems incredibly strong so perhaps I should indeed have put him exactly on one of those hands.

      Question 2: should I have folded BEFORE his re-raise all-in on the turn? Thinking about it afterwards, his line of call preflop, check/minraise flop and then bet out on the turn is already extremely strong and smells of successful set mining.

      Hello member001,

      Flop: Since he has such an AF then I would often even expect him to do such a minraise also with draws or even just a weaker Ax hand. So I would likely just 3bet there an try to get in, cooler if he has the 22s there. Also he doesn't have a full stack so likely is a bad player.

      As played
      Turn: Raise it up and go broke, nothing much we can do, well played.

      Best regards.
