      Pre-flop call ok with these cards, better to fold them?

      Cuttoff's ORL was 75%, again tiny sample but I assumed I'm ahead of his range.

      Always expect to get C-bet here on flop, but was the raise ok? Figure I'm very likely ahead of his range, unless he spiked an 8 and given his stack size I'm thinking he may call fairly light.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $2
      CO:
      $0.84

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q:club: , J:diamond:
      5 folds, CO raises to $0.06, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.04.

      Flop: ($0.13) J:spade: , 8:heart: , 8:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.09, Hero raises to $0.40, CO raises to $0.78 (All-In), Hero calls $0.38.

      Turn: ($1.69) 7:club:
      River: ($1.69) Q:spade: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $1.69

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows (Ah Jh)
      Hero shows two-pair, queens and jacks (Qc Jd)

      Hero wins with two-pair, queens and jacks (Qc Jd)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: Against his stack just fold the hand. You can't even be sure if you hit your pair that you will be ahead, or either you wont get that great implied odds postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: Nothing much to add as you hit your TP.

      Best regards.
