      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8:heart: , 8:diamond:
      2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.15, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.10.

        Calling as per SHC

      Flop: ($0.32) K:club: , T:diamond: , 9:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.1, Hero calls $0.10.

        Should I have folded here? Seemed to cheap not too call and see what the turn brought.

      Turn: ($0.52) 8:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks.

        Trying to be clever and slow play - should have bet here I think.

      River: ($0.52) 3:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.5, MP2 calls $0.50.

        Bet more here?

      Final Pot: $1.52

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP2 shows (As Th)
      Hero shows three-of-a-kind, eights (8h 8d)

      Hero wins with three-of-a-kind, eights (8h 8d)

      What do you think?

      Hello Spidey1978,

      Just keep it simple, if you don't hit then just fold the hand. Ain't worth leveling yourself. But as played I guess I'd even consider donking the turn myself while he did a small bet on flop.

      Best regards.
