      Known players: (for a description of vp$ip, pfr, ats, folded bb, af, wts, wsd or hands click here)      

      0.10/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:diamond: , 8:spade:
      5 folds, CO calls $0.25, BU folds, SB calls $0.15, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.75) J:spade: , 8:club: , 8:diamond: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.75, Hero raises to $2.00, CO folds, SB calls $1.25.

      Turn: ($4.75) 6:heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $2.75, Hero calls $2.75.

      River: ($10.25) 5:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $4, Hero calls $4.00.

      Final Pot: $18.25

      Should I get stacked here. SB probably has 8, but he is also a good player. Nevertheless I should re-raise turn and especially river. This would be ugly if he pushes.

      YES !!
      Stack or get stacked, but I guess you have him beat.

      He didn't raise preflop : JJ is virtually impossible
      He called you're flop raise : 66, 55 is out of the question
      What beats you ? J8, 86, 85
      I don't know whether the above three hands would be in villain "completion range", but normally they shouldn't be.

      So get your money in.
      If you lose, villain played badly preflop.

      I am broke in this spot: there are only 2 Hands that beat your hand: JJ and J8. JJ would nearly always raise preflop. J8 is possible, but very unlikely. Even a good player stacks up with any reasonable 8.
