      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $9.85
      MP3:
      $19.84
      CO:
      $14.60
      BU:
      $19.69
      SB (Hero):
      $22.54


      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, 8.
      MP3 raises to $0.30, CO folds, BU calls $0.30, Hero calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($1.2) J, A, 8 (4 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $1.20, MP3 folds, BU raises to $2.80, Hero raises to $6.40, BB calls $5.20, BU raises to $19.39, Hero calls $12.99, BB calls $3.15.

      Turn: ($49.53) T (3 players)


      River: ($49.53) 4 (3 players)

      The guy that donked the flop is 46/11/AF 1.7/WTS 29/142 hands he is super fishy and donks the flop about 25%, the other guy is 15/11/call open 10/AF 2.8/WTS 21/W$SD 43/551 hands so he is a rock. The problem here is that I couldn't find a fold ,only AJ and 8 8 beats me here and I think that he would have 3 bet the AJ o on the BU he has a 3 bet range of 4 ,the problem is that I don't know what can he have to play like that,8 8 was out of the question at that time.What do you think is this a cooler or I could have avoided that ???

      Final Pot: $49.53.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, aces and eights(As 8s).
      BU shows three of a kind, eights(8h 8d).
      BB shows two pairs, aces and fours(4s Ac).

      BU wins with three of a kind, eights(8h 8d).

      Hello alexgrapid,

      Basically that's why Calling preflop with such hands sometimes is crappy if you can't get away exactly in those spots. I do understand against BB but basically the problem is that BU is doing a raise against all of us and we are in multiway and dry board. What hands do you expect to beat there? Therefore I'd rather prefer just Check/Folding as I picked such a line. Plus we are 200BB deep, there is no way I am going broke. :( At the best I might call and reevaluate further actions but basically there is no way I am going broke with those 2pairs on flop being 200BB deep. What worse hands do you expect him to have which wants to go broke for 200BB?

      Best regards.
