      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.106 by

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9:spade: , 7:spade:
      UTG2 calls $0.02, 5 folds, Hero calls $0.01, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.06) 8:spade: , 4:spade: , 3:spade: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.06, BB folds, UTG2 calls $0.06.

      Turn: ($0.18) 4:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.17, UTG2 raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.23.

        calling station min raises here, i know im pretty well dead to a lot of boats, and higher flushes, but can still extract value from his bluffs (which should be rare) and his overpairs with a spade, Ax hands with 1 spade, as well as a 4 as well. so i decide b/c is good line here

      River: ($0.98) 9:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $0.26, Hero calls $0.26.

        river is a blank. so i can call the .26 on river profitably.

      Final Pot: $1.50

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows a full-house, eights full of fours (8d 8c)
      Hero shows (9s 7s)

      UTG2 wins with a full-house, eights full of fours (8d 8c)

      being OOP for whole hand allows me to get to pot control and see a showdown without having to fold to a bigger raise on turn or river. I may check behind river if IP but only because I labeled him a calling station. I figured he had a MONSTER. LOL
