      Final Pot: $4.12.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, jacks and eights(K J).
      SB shows two pairs, jacks and eights(A J).

      SB wins with two pairs, jacks and eights(A J).

      I had no idea in this spot. It was quite hard to put me in the line Call/Raise. Could there be another way better?

      Hello anhvusa,

      Preflop: That's the reason why I would strongly not advice to 3bet with those hands. You may easily be dominated postflop. And even if you do then why the heck do you Call? I mean what's the reason for it? While you even didn't mention then most likely you loosing way too much money in long run with such a play.

      As played
      Postflop: Exactly what happens even, you going broke with TP and not having the best kicker even and a lot better hands possible. QQ+/AJ.

      Best Regards.
