      Hand seemed to pretty much play itself post-flop.

      Pre-flop I raise as limpers range is wide enough to be behind 88 a large amount of the time.

      Known players:

      0.03/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 8:heart: , 8:diamond:
      UTG2 calls $0.05, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.23, 4 folds, UTG2 calls $0.18.

      Flop: ($0.54) 8:spade: , 7:diamond: , 3:heart: (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.41, UTG2 raises to $1.77, Hero raises to $3.13, UTG2 calls $0.32 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Turn: ($4.72) K:diamond:
      River: ($4.72) 5:club: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $4.72

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows (9s 9d)
      Hero shows three-of-a-kind, eights (8h 8d)

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

      Hello Philfox1985,

      If he had some kind of full stack then I might even consider slowplaying but while he doesn't have much left anyways I am getting it in as you did. Nice hand! Good that people paying so easily. :D

      Best regards.
