      Here I raise preflop with pocket 8's, and got two callers.

      I bet for value with my overpair on the flop and turn, then check/folded to pot sized bet on possible flush / overcard on the river.

      Should I have played this differently?


      Seat 5: BTN ( $6.24 USD ) - VPIP: 22, PFR: 5, 3B: 0, AF: 0.7, Hands: 58


      $0.03/$0.06 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players


      MP1: $6.14 (102.3 bb)
      MP2: $6.52 (108.7 bb)
      MP3: $7.34 (122.3 bb)
      CO: $5.91 (98.5 bb)
      BTN: $6.24 (104 bb)
      SB: $3.39 (56.5 bb)
      BB: $5.48 (91.3 bb)
      UTG+1: $2 (33.3 bb)
      Hero (UTG+2): $3.29 (54.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with 8:diamond: 8:club:
      UTG+1 checks, Hero raises to $0.18, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.18, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.18, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.63) 5:spade: 6:heart: 3:club: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.54, MP2 folds, BTN calls $0.54

      Turn: ($1.71) 6:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.35, BTN calls $1.35

      River: ($4.41) 9:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $4.17 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Results: $4.41 pot ($0.17 rake)
      Final Board: 5:spade: 6:heart: 3:club: 6:club: 9:club:
      BTN mucked and won $4.24 ($2.17 net)
      Hero mucked 8:diamond: 8:club: and lost (-$2.07 net)

      Hello,

      in my opinion well played. You can get two streets value at max and you need to protect against overcards. I think check/folding on river is fine since weaker hands would fold to bet or take free showdown and a 9 :club: completes some draws.

      Hey MoneyDearest,

      The 9 on the River completes the 87 draw and flushdraw. Safely to say I am check/folding the River too :)

      I like the Flop & Turn play though, gj!

      Best regards,
      Gerv
