      Hero (BB): $5.02 (100.4 bb)
      UTG: $1.24 (24.8 bb)
      MP: $5.28 (105.6 bb)
      CO: $5.02 (100.4 bb)
      BTN: $0.95 (19 bb)
      SB: $5.55 (111 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8 9
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.15, BTN folds, SB calls $0.13, Hero calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.45) 8 9 A (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.33, CO calls $0.33, SB folds

      Turn: ($1.11) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.70, CO calls $0.70

      River: ($2.51) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.84 and is all-in, CO folds

      Not sure if it was because I titled i went ahead and shoved, but heres my thought process:

      CO seems like a fishy player, only 8 hands but 63/50, SB 21/15-110hands, calls a bit to often.
      I reckon that I had rather good odds to call here, and 89s should have exelent playability multiway.

      Hit 2 pair, and figure I have to proctect against Ax hands, or somebody getting a draw.
      Bet to keep maybe an A in the hand.

      Same deal, but field is narrowed, I put him on the Ax, still thinking he is a bit loose.

      Wanted to make the bet smaller, but thoght if he has a hand like an Ax hand he will call, anyways, maybe I scared him off?
      Should I make a smaller value bet or even give up the hand? :f_confused:

      Preflop I don't mind calling.

      On the flop I like leading here and your sizing is good.

      On the turn your bet is good.

      Against unknown I prefer betting like $1.2-$1.3 on the river and folding to a raise.
