      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:club: , 8:club:
      3 folds, MP1 calls $0.25, 4 folds, SB calls $0.15, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.75) 7:spade: , 3:diamond: , 8:heart: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.50, MP1 calls $0.50, SB folds.

        Top pair, Top kicker, but only a middle pair so a raise for me.

      Turn: ($1.75) K:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks.

      River: ($1.75) 6:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $0.75, Hero calls $0.75.

        What would have been the right play on the river? If I don't give him an overpair I have to raise. But he could hold the K. So check. But than it should be a CF and no calling the bet of my opponent I think.

      Final Pot: $3.25

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP1 shows [ Ah, Ad ] a pair of Aces
      Hero shows [ Ac, 8c ] a pair of Eights
      MP1 wins $3.09 USD with a pair of Aces.
