      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8:heart: , 8:diamond:
      6 folds, BU raises to $0.04, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.14, BU folds.

      Final Pot: $0.19

      --- From previous hands with BU it seemed to me he was just trying to steal the blinds here, so having a fairly decent hand I decided to re-raise here, hoping for a fold but not overly worried if he made the call. Right play? (PS I'm not sure the bet amounts are correct here, I'm sure he bet $0.06 and I raised to $0.18 - or does the hand converter only show the additional amount added by the raise?)

      Hand converter should show hand as it was played with correct bet amounts. Does it shows right amounts in your hand history?

      About the hand. It's fine to 3bet hands like these against known opps, like you have reads he folds his steals to 3bets, fold to cbets often and overall his minraise seems really weakish, so nh.
      Betting amount is fine. I'd say make it roughly 3x his bet + 1BB for being OOP, so it's 0.04x3+0.02=0.14$ - just like you did.

      Good luck!
