      Normal play I assume?

      Over-raised the flop as I felt villian had shown enough strength to want to cal down pretty much any bet.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      BB:
      $3.99
      UTG2:
      $0.51
      Hero:
      $3.15
      BU:
      $0.35

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with 8:heart: , 8:spade:
      2 folds, UTG2 calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.05, 3 folds, BU calls $0.05, SB folds, BB raises to $0.23, UTG2 folds, Hero calls $0.18, BU calls $0.18.

      Flop: ($0.72) A:heart: , 8:diamond: , 6:diamond: (3 players)
      BB bets $0.58, Hero raises to $2.92 (All-In), BU calls $0.12 (All-In), BB calls $2.34.

      Turn: ($6.68) Q:spade:
      River: ($6.68) 3:heart: (3 players)


      Final Pot: $6.68

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows three-of-a-kind, eights (8h 8s)
      BU shows (7c 4d)
      BB shows (Ac Kc)

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

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: Against that kind of stack don't raise if you don't want to go broke. Also the min-raising doesn't make sense either.

      As played
      Postflop: You could as well just Call since BB will have a stronger range which mainly consist of some PPs/Ax hands. Which means he is going broke anyways if he has the Ax but of course shipping directly should be fine as well if you think there is no way he is folding the Ax.

      Best regards.

      Didn't want to go broke (pre-flop), the short-stack was passive player who wasn't raising much at all.

      Raised smaller to try to keep any pot sized 3-bet within a range where I can profitably call to set mine.

      Yeah, but still look a this VPIP which tells everything about his hand. He is capable of going broke very loose also he wasn't even raising but just limping so limping range is veeery wide which in long run we will earn profit. Even a lot of weaker PPs.

      So I should have limped into this pot?

      Against that kind of small-stack I'd rather like to limp in than raise and then even make the crying fold when the opponent decides to re-raise.
