      MP+1: $3.12
      LP: $4.49
      CO: $5.26
      BTN: $2.92
      SB: $1.06
      BB: $4.54
      UTG: $4.00
      Hero (UTG+1): $4.00
      MP: $4.00

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.04

      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero has 8:spade: 8:diamond:
      fold, Hero calls $0.04, MP calls $0.04, MP+1 calls $0.04, LP calls $0.04, fold, fold, fold, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.22, 5 players) K:heart: 8:heart: 2:club:
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.28, fold, fold, fold, fold

      Hero wins $0.21

      The board was fairly dry, only flush draw here, but it was 5-handed. Was overbet justified or pot size would have been enough?

      Hello faronel,

      Seems to be fine and I don't mind. If they have the Kx or a FD they are going to pay you anyways. Nice hand!

      If moving up the limits you could also start to consider raising preflop the PPs and not make it understandable and adjustable for other opponents. Easy to understand what you limping with.

      Best Regards.
