      Stacks:
      UTG - UTG ($11.60) vpip 48 prf 2 agg% 75 # 130
      UTG+1 - UTG+1 ($3.90)
      UTG+2 - UTG+2 ($19.38)

      SB - SB ($14.75)
      BB - BB ($9.84)

      Preflop: ($0.15, 9 players) Hero is MP2 with 8:club: 8:heart:
      UTG calls $0.10, UTG+1 calls $0.10, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, CO calls $0.60, 3 folds, UTG calls $0.50, 1 fold

      Flop: 7:diamond: T:diamond: 5:heart: ($2.05, 3 players)
      UTG bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, CO calls $0.30

      I couldn't raise here because the board was showing some draws, but for this price against an aggressive fish I thought it was OK to call.

      Turn: T:heart: ($2.95, 3 players)
      UTG bets $1.00, Hero calls $1.00, 1 fold

      I guess this was a good card for me.

      River: Q:spade: ($4.95, 2 players)
      UTG bets $2.00, Hero calls $2.00

      Once again, I thought it was a good price for my PP of 8's.

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      On the flop I think calling is fine. We have decent made hand here.

      On the turn I'd rather fold.
      We are behind against Tx, also we have a player behind and might have hard time playing on the river.

      On the river I would fold. I doubt he bets on three streets with worse here.

      Best,
      Plamen
