      I was following the starting hands chart so raised pre-flop and got min re-raised. I didn't know if it was okay to call this as the call 20 rule didn't apply, but seeing it as a min raise I called it.

      On the flop I hit my set and he raises to $0.21, I put him on top pair or a pair of 8s. I re-raised this 3x. the turn the situation never changed much, it put out another possible flush draw, but I don't think he would of chased the flush when I re-raised so continued and went all in as I had already invested a lot and from my point of view seemed like I had the best hand.

      Hello PokerPaul18,

      I actually like the way you played your hand and I would have done the same. Those guys are just so bad with their min-raise preflop and hoping like oh please Call me I have the nutz and then you crack their overpairs postflop. Well done!

      Best regards.
