      Not much more I can do here?

      Given small bet & raise I felt I always had to call given my odds of hitting Trips / a straight, or the 88 being good.

      Known players:

      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 CO with 8:heart: , 8:diamond:
      3 folds, MP1 raises to $0.04, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.04, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($0.11) 7:heart: , 6:heart: , 5:club: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.08, MP1 raises to $0.16, Hero calls $0.08.

      Turn: ($0.43) K:heart: (2 players)
      MP1 bets $0.1, Hero calls $0.10.

      River: ($0.63) K:club: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $0.63

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP1 shows a straight, nine high (9c 8c)
      Hero shows (8h 8d)

      MP1 wins with a straight, nine high (9c 8c)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Not much to say here while you even getting perfect odds on flop and for the given odds I wouldn't play any differently. Most likely would have played the same way. The river is thin value spot and myself I'd rather just check it behind while it might easily be even a trap with some set.

      Also we don't have actually that many outs on flop. We can't be sure that trips are clean outs and either even for straight. So I would definitely watch out.

      Best regards.
