      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K:club: , J:club:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, BB calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.17) K:heart: , 9:diamond: , 8:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.12, BB calls $0.12.

      Turn: ($0.41) Q:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.19, BB calls $0.19.

      River: ($0.79) A:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.22 (All-In), Hero calls $0.22.

      Final Pot: $1.23

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Kc Jc)
      BB shows two-pair, aces and eights (Ac 8s)

      BB wins with two-pair, aces and eights (Ac 8s)

      Flop: standard cbet
      Turn: I think I'm usually ahead with TPGK given that he is so loose 62/27, so bet again for value
      River: one of those "I know I'm beaten but for the given odds I feel compelled to call" situations.

      Probably should have put him all-in on turn. Also probably should have bet flop slightly bigger, which would have made it a more convenient pot size to put him all-in on the turn.
      As played, should have folded the river, or make the crying call for the given odds because his shortstack all-in gets less credit?

      Hello member001,

      Against those stacks usually just try to calculate in your head to make him all-in by turn and that's all. Otherwise I guess you don't even beat much he likely has you beat but for the given odds there is not much to do.

      Best regards.
