      Hero (SB): $4 (100 bb)
      BB: $1.12 (28 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K 8
      Hero raises to $0.12, BB calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.24) 8 T 6 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.14, BB raises to $0.28, Hero folds

      Results: $0.52 pot ($0.03 rake)
      Final Board: 8 T 6
      Hero mucked K 8 and lost (-$0.26 net)
      BB mucked and won $0.49 ($0.23 net)

      I just opened a new table and this is our first hand. I suppose this is standard up until the c/r. I mean, can we call without any history/reads?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Nah, I would most likely play the same way. We can't really continue there with just mid-pair and against his stack. If I would continue then I'd just get it in.

      Best Regards.

      And if he was fullstacked?

      Under what conditions would you get it in?

      Then would depend on the opponent. Most likely folding would be still the safest option to avoid any marginal plays on the turn since we wont be able to Call it there very easily anyways. Neither we wont know even if we hit something where we stand.

      Under what conditions would you get it in?

      Against opponents who I expect to Check/raise very loose and have an aggressive image.
