      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      CO: $2.44
      BTN: $4.94
      SB: $2.05
      Hero (BB): $2.06
      UTG: $2.07
      UTG+1: $0.86
      UTG+2: $1.71
      MP: $4.97
      MP+1: $2.17

      SB posts SB $0.01, Hero posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has 5:club: 5:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.08, fold, Hero calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.17, 2 players) 8:diamond: 8:club: 3:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.11, Hero raises to $0.27, fold

      Hero wins $0.38

      Villain is TAG
      I took this line cause I didn't want to donk and maybe villain could find someway to fold a larger pair? Not sure if this is realistic, a TAG would probably do it?
      Or should I check/call and try to bluff induce?

      Hello Raknyo,

      Check/Raising is possible cause we don't want to see overcards coming on the boards which will be difficult to Call. But that also depends on an opponent cause you can't really represent much here with the Check/Raise.

      Best Regards.
