      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02 BB (10 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      CO ($1.04)

      BB ($0.84)
      UTG ($1.02)
      UTG+1 ($1.24)
      UTG+2 ($4.98)
      MP1 ($5.14)
      MP2 ($1.94)
      MP3 ($5)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 8, A
      2 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.02, 2 folds, MP3 (poster) checks, 1 fold, Button calls $0.02, Hero calls $0.01, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.10) A, 5, 8 (5 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, 1 fold, UTG+2 calls $0.08, 2 folds

      Turn: ($0.26) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, UTG+2 raises $0.40, Hero raises $1.10, 1 fold

      Total pot: $1.06

      Results:
      Hero had 8, A.

      Did I need to take too much aggression on TURN with 2 pairs like this?

      Hello anhvusa,

      With hands do you expect him to continue there? There ain't gonna be many worse 2pairs in his range since 52/82 or anything similar ain't really that likely. For that given reason I guess it's kinda close either to 3bet or not. You will rarely get value from a lot worse while it's just a freeplay pot.

      Best Regards.
