      Ok to smooth call flop?

      On turn I figure its best to get my money in, board had a little more potential draws & villian has slowed down with his bet size.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      BB:
      $2.61
      Hero:
      $2.43

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 8:diamond: , 8:club:
      Hero raises to $0.07, 4 folds, BB calls $0.05.

      Flop: ($0.15) J:spade: , 8:heart: , 4:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.15, Hero calls $0.15.

      Turn: ($0.45) T:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.21, Hero raises to $1.08, BB raises to $2.39 (All-In), Hero calls $1.13 (All-In), BB gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      River: ($4.87) 3:spade: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $4.87

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows three-of-a-kind, eights (8d 8c)
      BB shows (Kh Jd)

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

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Just raise it right on flop. Usually if they donk like that they are also able to go broke. There might be a lot of overcards or even straight-complete cards which might make him more likely to fold any kind of pair which he donks like this or hand. Although he could still continue on flop if you raise even with draw.

      Or do you expect him to be that aggressive to have air here?

      Best Regards.
