      BB: $6 (100 bb)
      CO: $1.70 (28.3 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $8.78 (146.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q T
      CO folds, Hero raises to $0.21, SB calls $0.18, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.48) 8 Q J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.36, SB raises to $1.56, Hero calls $1.20

      Turn: ($3.60) 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $3.60, Hero raises to $7.01 and is all-in, SB calls $3.41

      River: ($17.62) J (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results: $17.62 pot ($1.03 rake)

      It looks neaty, but I would have folded on the flop. There are some 2 pairs plus one or 2 sets posible and at this stakes people reraise when they are strong, regardless of the board texture or if they need to protect or not. Also even your top pair can be dominated and your gut shot doesn't help you that much.

      If you decide to call the flop, because he is agresive or for some reason you put him on a bluff, the turn is a clear indication of strencth and you should fold.

      Hello MattDenness,

      Why do you play for the stacks here? What do you expect to beat on the flop? We don't even know the opponent and therefore I'd most likely even give it up right on the flop.

      Best Regards.
