      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $3.29
      UTG2:
      $1.11

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K:heart: , K:spade:
      UTG2 raises to $0.04, 5 folds, Hero raises to $0.13, BB folds, UTG2 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.27) 8:spade: , 8:diamond: , 2:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.13, UTG2 raises to $0.26, Hero calls $0.13.

      Turn: ($0.79) Q:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.4, UTG2 raises to $0.73 (All-In), Hero calls $0.33.

      River: ($2.25) 9:club: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $2.25

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows (Ah Kd)
      Hero shows two-pair, kings and eights (Kh Ks)

      Hero wins with two-pair, kings and eights (Kh Ks)

      --- Anything you'd do different here? PS the pre-flop raise was to $0.12 not $0.13, I've figured out why the amounts are showing up wrong - when I'm SB it adds +$0.01 to my raise, and $0.02 for BB (even though I am actually raising *to* that amount not that much on top of the blind)

      i think id bet 2/3 on the flop and shove when he raises. With his stack size he is commited either way, so id just try to get it in. You could argue that your hand is good enough to slowplay, in which case your play is probably fine. There are also no draws out, except in this case the ace.

      Hi Royaltramp!

      With SPR of 4 you are happy put money in. You can just call flop and let him bet the turn. In case he will shut up on turn, you can still try to push it on river.

      In case villain is extremly passive you can fold to flop raise.

      Regards
