      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.96 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8:heart: , 8:club:
      5 folds, CO raises to $0.10, BU folds, SB calls $0.08, Hero calls $0.05.

      Flop: ($0.30) A:diamond: , J:club: , 8:diamond: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.25, Hero raises to $0.75, CO calls $0.75, SB calls $0.50.

        I flopped the set but SB bets like he's protecting a hand, so I re-raised just to check. Then I get the call from the CO and SB.

      Turn: ($2.55) 7:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.6, CO calls $0.41 (All-In), SB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

        Did I bet too huge in here? I was thinking of betting a little bit smaller to get SB to tag along, but the board was drawy and I just got called by the short-stack. Nothing I can do in here. :D

      River: ($3.37) 5:diamond: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $3.37

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows a flush, ace high (Ah Jd)
      Hero shows (8h 8c)

      CO wins with a flush, ace high (Ah Jd)

      This hand is played nicely imo. On the turn - you can consider betting a little smaller (1/2 pot) and folding to a raise by SB - since if he shoves there he would often have you beat. You beat some AXd hands - but thats about it. Nothing else to do other than go broke vs CO.
