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

      fold, Hero raises to $0.08, fold, BTN calls $0.08, SB calls $0.07, fold

      Flop: ($0.26, 3 players) T:club: 4:spade: 2:spade:
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.16

      F: I bet because I assume that I have the best hand often enough and want to protect my hand against possible draws. Problem is, I can't really represent much more than an over-pair in this spot, though my range does consist of a large number of overpairs. Also, I will probably have to give up on later betting rounds as I can't assume that I am ahead if called.

      I didn't notice the SB hasn't folded to a c-bet yet though, so I guess I could find a fold in this spot as he will call with a lot of Tx hands as well as A3 or A5.

      If you don't fold a pair in this spot, would you c-bet if we didn't have a pair in this spot, and we didn't know SB hadn't folded to a c-bet yet?
