      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $2.03
      BB (Hero):
      $3.79
      UTG2:

      CO:
      $2.23
      BU:
      $1.47


      Preflop: Hero is BB with T, 3.
      5 folds, BU calls $0.02, SB folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.05) 8, 8, A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($0.05) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      River: ($0.05) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.03, BU raises to $0.14, Hero calls $0.11.

      Final Pot: $0.33.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a full-house, eights full of tens(Tc 3s).
      BU shows three of a kind, eights(5c 6h).

      Hero wins with a full-house, eights full of tens(Tc 3s).

      Is this the right play on the river? I figured it's not unfeasible that he limped in with some Ax or 8x hand, or better Tx - but should I have been looking to get value from any smaller PP's?

      Hello numbnutter,

      You could easily even bet the flop yourself. :) But as played I'd just Bet/Fold it on river, no point to Call, he may easily even slowplay Ax there. You just beat bluff, do you think he is capable of bluffing the river? It's just a freeplay pot where people will not that often bluff.

      Best Regards.
