      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has T:heart: T:diamond:

      Hero raises to $0.08, fold, fold, MP+1 calls $0.08, CO raises to $0.18, BTN calls $0.18, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.10, MP+1 calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.75, 4 players) 4:spade: 8:club: 8:diamond:
      Hero checks, MP+1 checks, CO bets $0.18, fold, Hero raises to $0.99, fold, fold

      This hand I called the preflop raise because it was hardly more than a min-raise and was to treat it like a set-miner. After the flop I was looking to get value from many hands with stronger over-cards.
      What really made me raise confident in my raise was the small bet on the flop relative to the pot. If he had overcards, which was likely, I didn't want him drawing to one of his 6 outs.

      Both call pre-flop adn c/r flop for value is fine. I would not make it too big, since he mostly has there smt like AK, so you can easily check on K or A turn card and if you c/r to 0.6$ then you leave potsize to shove on the turn

      best regards,
