      My issue here after reviewing the hand is that I may have bet too high and not extracted value. UTG 2 and I played a few hands before and he usually 3 bets me.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 8, J.
      UTG2 calls $0.04, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.04, SB calls $0.02, BB checks.

      Raise preflop, you have position and you're even deep with him.

      As played your betsizing is good. You want to extract maximum value, you could argue that a riverbet of $1.32 would look a lot weaker, but generally betting close to pot is definitely the right way to go on the micros.
