      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (9 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      Hero (UTG) ($10.45)
      UTG+1 ($37.51)
      MP1 ($25.25)
      MP2 ($10)
      MP3 ($64.94)
      CO ($45.86)
      Button ($33.68)
      SB ($26.33)
      BB ($25.70)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with 8, 8
      Hero bets $1, 5 folds, Button calls $1, 1 fold, BB calls $0.75

      Flop: ($3.10) 3, 4, 6 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $3, 2 folds

      Total pot: $3.10 | Rake: $0.15

      BU is reg (17/7/600+) (vpip/pfr/hands) and UTG+1 is nit reg (13/11/2K+)

      with the utg raise and the pot size bet, I try to represent a strong PP, in process I am not giving the right odds to draws of which i am ahead of, same with 2 over cards. BU could have all sort of hands of which I am ahead of so I am betting for value. with UTG+1 is is more of an issue, as the call with 1 raiser and a caller could well be for a speculative hands including PPs.

      So first is the cbet right for the reasons listed above? is the size of the bet ok?

      As for how I would have played it, if called/ raised. I guess I would have called or pushed to a raise because I am quite involved in the pot already and so many pepole will push me there with a draw so I could be getting some value. If called I reevaluate on turn generally give up if draw complete or push otherwise.

      Mostly I bet/jam here against players who raise more than 2pair+ so it depends more on their aggression stats
      a check/jam would be viable if they bet a lot when you check to them
