      iPoker - $0.20 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: 100 BB
      UTG: 124.85 BB
      Hero (MP): 103.75 BB
      CO: 109.8 BB
      BTN: 58.5 BB
      SB: 100 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 8:club: 8:diamond:

      UTG raises to 2 BB, Hero calls 2 BB, fold, fold, fold, BB raises to 12 BB, fold, Hero calls 10 BB

      Flop: (26.5 BB, 2 players) 3:diamond: 7:spade: T:diamond:
      BB checks, Hero bets 7 BB, BB raises to 23.75 BB, Hero calls 16.75 BB

      Turn: (74 BB, 2 players) 4:heart:
      BB checks, Hero bets 5 BB, fold

      Hero shows 8:club: 8:diamond: (One Pair, Eights)
      Hero wins 70.3 BB

      UTG 11 hands 30/20
      bb 1.6k hands, 21/17, 3bet 8, sqeeze 6

      I know that his sqeeze should be tighter against UTG and MP, but since I call I am weak, and people tend to sqeeze more often against 2BB open raise since it is cheaper.
      I call sqeeze because I plan to defend hand on small cards. Probably he is not right opponent because he doesnt 3bet so wide.

      When he checks on flop, it is almost always give up on this board, so I bet small to let him call with his AK,AQ, or to induce bluff from him. I dont think that anybody plays nuts this way. so I call, and try to induce bluff on turn or take the pot cheap.

      Hey mlatasrb,

      Fold it preflop imo - sqz is large and hand is too difficult to defend profitably on most boards.

      Postflop line looks fine to me (although I think folding flop to raise is fine and the standard option.) Well played on turn.
