      SB shows three of a kind, eights(4 8).
      Hero shows two pairs, jacks and eights(Q J).

      SB wins with three of a kind, eights(4 8).

      he redefends his blinds very often, the 0.20 reraise is standard for him + he knows i steal a lot from the button, but by calling i showed some reasonable strength... i dunno i asked myself, does he have a pocket pair and i thought maybe he doesbut unlikely and even if, he knows i'm solid and he knows that i'm solid, so he will lay down a lot imo... i usually never do these crazy moves, but whatever it seemed like a good spot to try it...kinda failed :D
      was this a total spew?

      Hello abc794,

      Doesn't make sense to shove the flop. I don't think that he will fold any PPs/pairs there anyways. Guess some normal size raise would work perfectly like $0,80 if you want to raise at all and would even save some money.

      Best regards.
