      UTG ($3.71)
      MP ($2.28)
      CO ($3.62)

      Preflop: HollyMichelle is Button with 8, 8
      2 folds, CO calls $0.02, HollyMichelle bets $0.08, SB calls $0.07, 1 fold, CO calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.26) 4, 3, 6 (3 players)
      SB checks, CO bets $0.16, HollyMichelle raises to $0.50, SB raises to $1.57 (All-In), 1 fold, HollyMichelle calls $1.07

      Turn: ($3.56) 10 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: ($3.56) J (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $3.56 | Rake: $0.12

      Looking back on this I'm not so sure about my play.

      I call preflop to set mine and I end up with an overpair vs 2 opponents. I raise to get overcards out but can I realistically call SBs shove here ever?

      How do you play this hand?

      Preflop you don't call, but you raise here and I tend to do it pot size in these spots just to build up the pot.

      I actually prefer calling CO's donk bet on the flop here. Our overpair is a little bit weak and I don't want to make the pot huge, since we will have hard time playing turn and river.
      As played, I'd probably fold when he shoves. I doubt he has a worse hand here and even against the draws we are 50/50.
