      Hero mucked 7 7 and lost (-$8.77 net)
      CO showed 8 8 and won $18.24 ($9.47 net)

      I didnt know what I should be doing there.

      I clearly put my opponent on a higher pair and I felt it was ideal as he was calling behing on every street inflating the pot.

      Should I be folding the bet on the river ;/

      Preflop raising is ok and when he 3bets calling is good since you are deep.

      Just calling the flop is good by me.
      The board is dry-ish and there's no need to raise here in my opinion.

      Betting the turn is fine.

      On the river I don't really like check/calling since we are splitting in the best scenario.
      So I'd just fold here.

      Hi plamen,

      He is betting 4.80 in a pot of almost $10.

      How I saw it was that if he makes this play once every three times as a bluff I am breaking even.

      If he makes it 4 in ten I am making profit.

      I dont understand why that is a fold to be honest.

      All the best,
