      I don't have the hand history , so i will post the hand as i remember !!!

      Playing at full tilt , rush poker $0.05 / $0.10 ( SB / BB )

      I was in late position with A 8 offsuited , he was right before me , calls the big blind .. i call .. small blind fold , big blind checks ..
      POT : $0.35
      FLOP : 7 8 7
      BB checks , opponent checks , i raise $0.3 , BB fold,opponent re-raise me $0.75 i called . I put them on 7 but i thought that if he had 7 an 8 would make me big ..
      POT : $1.85
      TURN : 8
      He raised $1.15 , i go all in with $8.49 , opponent have a remaining "stack" of $10.24 , he called me almost when the time expired .
      Opponent : 10 - 10
      ..... i was .. wtf , why this idiot called me .. ??
      and of course the river was : 10 .. full house 10's over 8's and me 8's over 7's ... tell me please if i make a mistake ... !!!!

      Hello Cen7,

      Preflop: Just fold it here, or either raise it up. Don't really like the Call here.

      As played
      Flop: I'd rather just Bet/Fold, he will often have a better hand here, and we are just putting ourself into bad spots, when we hit something again, like a A or whatsoever.

      As played if flop was Bet/Called
      Turn: Likely going also broke here. But I wouldn't go directly all-in there with the hand, I'd make a normal raise. We still want him to keep in the pot. :)

      Best regards.
