      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $6.65
      SB:
      $5.02
      BB:
      $5.70
      MP2 (Hero):
      $5.94
      MP3:
      $5.00
      CO:
      $4.00


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K, K.
      Hero raises to $0.20, MP3 calls $0.20, CO raises to $0.55, 3 folds, Hero raises to $1.40, MP3 calls $1.20, CO folds.

      His bt sizing seemed really weird, that's why I didn't raise the flop. But looking back I should just get it in on the flop?

      Flop: ($3.42) 8, 3, Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0.85, Hero calls $0.85.

      Turn: ($5.12) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $1.00, Hero raises to $3.69, MP3 calls $1.75.

      River: ($11.56) 5 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $11.56.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of kings(K K).
      MP3 shows three of a kind, eights(8 8).

      MP3 wins with three of a kind, eights(8 8).

      Hello swanny36,

      Preflop: Basically I would just make raise to like $2 there and try to get it in.

      As played
      Postflop: Why don't you just CBet it? Rather just CBet it and get value from any kind of draws and worse pairs, and yes I am likely going broke. But overall, your line is pretty bad.

      Best regards.
