      Villain is unknown.

      PokerStars - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (MP+1): $10.17
      CO: $4.00
      BTN: $3.85
      SB: $4.31
      BB: $11.07
      UTG: $10.00
      UTG+1: $4.00
      MP: $7.31

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has 8:heart: 8:club:

      fold, UTG+1 calls $0.10, MP calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.60, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, MP calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.45, 2 players) A:heart: T:club: K:club:
      MP bets $0.30, Hero raises to $1.30, MP calls $1.00

      Turn: ($4.05, 2 players) 9:heart:
      MP checks, Hero checks

      River: ($4.05, 2 players) A:spade:
      MP bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40

      I want to check my preflop play, but I think this is a standard raise in my game.
      On the flop I didn't like the tiny bet and I felt I could continue to represent my hand. When the villain calls the raise I put him on a made hand better than 88 and feel they won't fold much if they are donking/calling the flop.

      On the river the bet is so small I felt the odds are right to look up to see if he is betting a busted flush/straight draw...

      Hi Phoenix,

      Preflop: Looks fine

      Flop: Considering that we play against fishy guys that limp all broadways/Ax hands why are we trying to bluff them on this board?

      We should just fold the flop.

      As played simply give up on the hand after the call on the flop.
