      888 Poker - $0.02 NL - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BB: $2.00
      UTG: $2.29
      Hero (MP): $2.07
      CO: $2.10
      BTN: $1.78
      SB: $2.18

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02, CO posts DB $0.03

      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero has 8:diamond: 8:spade:

      UTG calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.08, fold, fold, SB calls $0.07, BB calls $0.06, fold

      Flop: ($0.29, 3 players) 3:diamond: K:spade: 5:diamond:
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.14, fold, BB calls $0.14

      Turn: ($0.57, 2 players) K:club:
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.28, BB calls $0.28

      River: ($1.13, 2 players) 4:diamond:
      BB checks, Hero checks

      BB shows 7:diamond: A:diamond: (Flush, Ace High) (Pre 32%, Flop 44%, Turn 23%)
      Hero mucks 8:diamond: 8:spade: (Two Pair, Kings and Eights) (Pre 68%, Flop 56%, Turn 77%)
      BB wins $1.06

      Think this was a scary flop considering that he could have a King or a higher pair, but he checked so i went for a C-bet to protect my pair

      Turn: I was pretty confident that i was ahead at this point and bet again

      River: Calling so many times he would most certainly have something that was better that I had, expacialy since the diamond came, so checking seemed right.

      How was my bet sizing? Since i had a medium pair, maybe i should check at the flop to keep the pot small. Because i dont want to get into large pots with just a medium pair.

      And what if he bet like 0.2$ at the river. Should i call?

      Hello Musematte,

      Preflop: I'd isolate even bigger here while CO posts a dead blind and UTG limps, even $0,12.
      Postflop: I'd still Bet the flop & turn a bit bigger to protect our hand from draws which could be very likely to happen while the K made him less likely to have a hand.

      If he Bet the river I'd most likely just fold cause I doubt that we are going to beat much there.

      Best Regards.
