      Villain was 29/13 with AF 1.3, had 65 hands on him

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $2.30
      BB (Hero):
      $2.00
      MP1:
      $0.79
      MP2:
      $3.11
      MP3:
      $2.50
      CO:
      $1.19
      BU:
      $2.00


      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, 8.
      5 folds, SB calls $0.01, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.04) T, 7, Q (2 players)
      SB bets $0.04, Hero raises to $0.14, SB raises to $2.28, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.18.

      Should I have raised preflop on him or should I have just let this one go? or should I have called his bet and try and hit gutshot?

      Thanks in advance

      Hello,

      If your opponent is capable of foldin isolation bets pre-flop, I would make it here. If he calls, we have a position anyway and we are still slightly ahead of his limping range :)

      As played, just call flop. If you raise you turn your hand into some sort of a bluff and you have to fold it to a raise. And you might not have all your outs alive there because you can't count 9 of diamonds as clear out.

      Hello HrabriLavek,

      Preflop: Could raise it up even vs the completer and take initiative on you.

      As played
      Postflop: Not worth raising here cause you ain't making strong made hands to fold not even pairs. Your equity ain't that good either. At the best just call and take the implied odds, though even that ain't good idea cause clearly we have a lot cards which remove our outs.

      Best Regards.
