      What on earth is this guy doing?
      I hate hands like this/
      No way I want to fold it, no way I want to get all wild and raisey either

      No significant stats

      What is the proper way to handle these?

      And Welcome kymupa & Tomaloc!
      Great job so far!

      Party, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 4 Players

      BTN: $4 (100 bb)
      SB: $1.16 (29 bb)
      Hero (BB): $4 (100 bb)
      CO: $4.08 (102 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8 8
      2 folds, SB completes, Hero raises to $0.12, SB calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.24) 7 T 4 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.04, Hero calls $0.04

      Turn: ($0.32) T (2 players)
      SB bets $0.04, Hero calls $0.04

      River: ($0.40) 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.04, Hero calls $0.04

      $0.48 pot ($0.02 rake)
      Final Board: 7 T 4 T 5
      SB showed 4 8 and lost (-$0.24 net)
      Hero showed 8 8 and won $0.46 ($0.22 net)

      Yeah I'd raise the flop too. Don't want to see over cards and our hand might not improve now.

      Thank you sir! :s_love: :s_love:

      Preflop raising is fine and I like your sizing - since SB has a smaller stack 3bb is just fine.

      On the flop I'd raise here for value - don't need to make it big - just $0.18 will do the job.

      As played on the flop, the turn is a really good card for us and considering his bets we are most likely to be having the best hand here.
      Again, I think we should be raising here.

      When you called two streets, the river is our last chance to get some value here.
      I'd raise something like $0.3 here.

      Overall you played it too passive I think and you should try to be a little bit more aggressive in these spots.
