      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 8:spade: , 8:diamond:
      UTG2 calls $0.02, MP1 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 5 folds, UTG2 calls $0.06.

      Final Pot: $0.95

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows (As Th)
      Hero shows two-pair, eights and sevens (8s 8d)

      Hero wins with two-pair, eights and sevens (8s 8d)


      Villain is not a maniac but seems overaggressive postflop, Agg=4.3.


      Flop: I think such a small donk means either complete bluff, or something that has connected with the board to make 1-pair hand. May also mean drawing hand. Doesn't feel that a 2pair or set would play this way. Therefore I call because I think I am ahead. I don't think a worse hand would call my raise.

      Turn: I can't see many Qx hands that villain would limp/call preflop and donk flop, so given the small bet size I think I have odds to call here.

      River: if I called turn I guess I have to call river. But if there was a sudden increase in villain's bet sizing I would assume 7x and fold, do you agree?

      Is this all doable to call 3 small barrels against such an opponent?

      Thanks

      Hello member001,

      Preflop: I would likely do it like $0,10 here.
      Postflop: For the given odds not much to add, I would as well Call him down. Doesn't make sense much there anyways. If he even had the 7x on river, he would be likely inclined to bet it bigger.

      Best regards.
