      Everest - $0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      CO: $5.31
      BTN: $4.84
      SB: $8.95
      BB: $2.45
      UTG: $11.17
      Hero (MP): $5.71

      SB posts SB $0.03, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.08) Hero has 8:heart: 8:diamond:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.16, fold, fold, SB raises to $0.53, fold, Hero calls $0.37

      the problem is that he may be 3betting with "wide" range. still he's doing it SB vs MP which is probably stronger... and i have position which should also count for something, may be able to defend vs overcards better :D

      Flop: ($1.11, 2 players) 6:diamond: 9:spade: 8:spade:
      SB bets $0.77, Hero raises to $2.22, SB raises to $7.77, Hero calls $2.96 and is all-in
      not a lot to comment :f_biggrin: i just commit myself...

      Turn: ($11.47, 2 players) 3:spade:

      River: ($11.47, 2 players) K:diamond:

      SB shows A:diamond: A:club: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 80%, Flop 11%, Turn 5%)
      Hero shows 8:heart: 8:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Eights) (Pre 20%, Flop 89%, Turn 95%)
      Hero wins $10.71

      i'll use this space to shamelessly promote my blog to all hand evaluation regulars! i've posted this hand there too, but in a different style :D

      Given the wider range of playable hands in SH poker I wouldn't put too much thought into his reraise preflop when you open with a standard raise in MP. His range of hands there is likely any pairs down to possibly 10's (maybe less if he's a loose player), Ax (again varies depending on player aggression). Given his stack size vs your stack size, the implied odds here is to call and hope to hit your set. Should u miss on a board that dry, be prepared to call the flop and fold the turn to any further aggression. Well played.

      If you think his 3-bet range is quite wide, then I would also called pf. But I would also continue low boards and also likely call once on Txx, Jxx fops

      Postflop raise for value and protection is fine. If he has there overpair he would get all-in.

      best regards,
