      Preflop: Hero is BU with 8:heart: , 8:diamond:
      MP2 raises to $0.20, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.20, 2 folds.

      River: ($2.75) A:spade: (2 players)
      MP2 bets $11.21 (All-In), Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $2.75

      Possible 3bet pre? I was a little scared to isolate versus a strong range of nit.

      I opt for the passive line post flop hoping he barrels his overcards , I didn't see much value in a raise as I could find much worse that would call.

      A is a great barrel card for villains KQ or such but I couldn't find a call not knowing is NL5 nit is capable of 3 barrel bluff? Is the river fold good?

      Hello CheckBop,

      Don't really see why we should 3bet here preflop?

      Although as played I don't like the turn Call at all. We just beat some 2nd barreling draw and that's it. I'd rather just fold it on turn and be happy over the play.

      Best regards.

      Yer sorry didn't realize villain opened from utg, while glancing over HHS I saw BU which was our position not villains.
