      PokerStars - $0.05 NL - Holdem - 7 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (BB): $6.09
      UTG: $3.38
      UTG+1: $5.98
      MP: $3.88
      CO: $1.09
      BTN: $1.90
      SB: $3.05

      SB posts SB $0.02, Hero posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has 8:heart: 8:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.05, fold, Hero raises to $0.25, BTN calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.52, 2 players) 4:heart: 4:diamond: A:spade:
      Hero bets $0.35, fold

      I figured my range was good against a single limping Button. I c-bet the flop to try to take down the pot. I could expect calls and raises from 4x and Ax and over-pairs, where I would give up the hand. But I could also get value from a calling KQ, KJ, KT, 77, 66, 55, etc. More so, I want to represent the A and take down the small pot now.

      Hey PhoenixPhreak,

      Seems like a standard spot. Your hand is way to weak to turn it into a bluffcatcher. So Cbet for protection(value) seems like a must . Even it is not the greatest board we still have to take such a line. Nice hand!

      Best regards,
