      Preflop: Hero is CO with 8, 7.
      UTG2 raises to $0.75, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.75, BU calls $0.75, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($2.6) 5, 8, 6 (3 players)

      Turn: ($20.14) 6 (2 players)


      River: ($20.14) A (2 players)


      Final Pot: $20.14.
      Results follow:

      UTG2 shows two pairs, jacks and sixes(J J).
      Hero shows two pairs, eights and sixes(8 7).

      UTG2 wins with two pairs, jacks and sixes(J J).


      Looking back at this hand I didn't realise villain was short stacked so probably shouldn't have even played this, but as played is it fine to raise the flop for fold equity or better to flat and try to take it down on the turn if he checks?

      Hello QuadziIIa,

      Preflop: UTG2 doesn't even have a full stack, so standard fold.

      As played
      Postflop: Not worth even raising cause you ain't making any better hands to fold. Rather drag other guys along and might even invite them to come along with weaker draws/hands. If you raise then of course not much to comment.

      Best Regards.
