      BTN: $8.91 (89.1 bb)
      SB: $1.85 (18.5 bb)
      BB: $10.14 (101.4 bb)
      UTG: $10 (100 bb)
      MP: $33.45 (334.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $20.25 (202.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A 8
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, BTN folds, SB calls $0.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($1) 7 8 7 (3 players)
      SB bets $1.55 and is all-in, MP folds, Hero calls $1.55

      Turn: ($4.10) J (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($4.10) 3 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $4.10 pot ($0.18 rake)
      Final Board: 7 8 7 J 3
      SB showed Q K and lost (-$1.85 net)
      MP mucked and lost (-$0.30 net)
      Hero showed A 8 and won $3.92 ($2.07 net)

      MP = 21/11 over 40 hands and SB is unknown.

      preflop i didn't see SB's stack so i think its probably actually a fold. if he wasn't something to worry about then maybe i should have 3bet vs MP since i can't expect to get anything postflop. maybe it's okay? i tend to just 3bet light with this sort of hand. i think A8s is borderline though.

      postflop i think SBs range is so wide now i can just call it off with my hand. i beat any other 8x hand apart form 87 and i think he can do this with overcards/draws. is it okay to call here?
