      SB: $2.33 (116.5 bb)
      BB: $4.96 (248 bb)
      UTG: $1.79 (89.5 bb)
      Hero (MP): $5.04 (252 bb)
      CO: $2.31 (115.5 bb)
      BTN: $1.91 (95.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with 8 7
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.06, 3 folds, BB raises to $0.14, Hero calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.29) A 2 5 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.14, BB raises to $0.40, Hero folds

      Seemed like a nice board to bluff. Villains check raise looked like he was holding a moster.

      Preflop I would fold this hand from this position.
      Facing the small 3bet I think calling IP is good.

      I would just check the flop here. Once he checks the Axx board (which is great for bluffing) I think he always have a made hand here and he is almost never going to check/fold so betting here (if we don't plan to bet on multiple streets) will be bad.

      When he raises we have quite an easy decision.
