      MP3: $1.79 (17.9 bb)
      CO: $11.90 (119 bb)
      BTN: $10 (100 bb)
      SB: $6.36 (63.6 bb)
      Hero (BB): $10 (100 bb)
      MP1: $20.01 (200.1 bb)
      MP2: $10.14 (101.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8 8
      MP1 calls $0.10, 3 folds, BTN raises to $0.40, SB folds, Hero calls $0.30, MP1 calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.25) 8 7 5 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.82, MP1 calls $0.82, BTN calls $0.82

      Turn: ($3.71) J (3 players)
      Hero bets $2.25, MP1 folds, BTN calls $2.25

      River: ($8.21) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $3.26, Hero calls $3.26

      Results:[spoiler] $14.73 pot ($0.73 rake)
      Final Board: 8 7 5 J 9

      After 27/19 villain called on turn, 9 is too scare and but FD and two pair is also possible so I cry called.
      any leaks?

      Hello Gonchan,

      2pairs ain't really possible cause he is almost never betting them there on such a board, no value from him. Neither I don't even see him betting with sets. Therefore only hand you beat is missed FD. I don't have any information on either how he plays or how aggressively he bets which makes me even Check/Fold it over Check/Call vs rather value-bet likely bet (6x/9x still got there).

      Best Regards.
