      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $0.93
      SB: $2.74
      BB: $7.96
      UTG: $4.10
      UTG+1: $2.57
      UTG+2: $0.98
      MP: $1.38
      MP+1: $1.21
      Hero (CO): $2.57

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has 8:diamond: 8:spade:

      fold, fold, UTG+2 calls $0.02, MP calls $0.02, MP+1 calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, fold, fold, fold, UTG+2 calls $0.08, MP calls $0.08, fold

      Flop: ($0.35, 3 players) 4:spade: 2:club: 3:spade:
      UTG+2 checks, MP checks, Hero bets $0.24, UTG+2 raises to $0.88 and is all-in, fold, fold

      UTG+2 wins $0.80

      I really don't know what to think of this hand. I know my Preflop raise was too weak, should've been like 6~7 bb. Anyways, was this fold ok? I'm not sure I did the right move there, can't estimate a good range for the villain.

      Hello coconauta,

      Preflop: If your plan is to raise for value standard raise would be 4xBB + 1xBB per limper.

      AS played
      Postflop: Against his s tack I'd just Call it down while you raised for value, I assume that he could even ship with pure draws.

      Best Regards.
