      Microgaming - £0.02 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BB): £2.00
      UTG: £2.92
      CO: £0.77
      BTN: £1.47
      SB: £2.65

      SB posts SB £0.01, Hero posts BB £0.02, UTG posts DB £0.03

      Pre Flop: (pot: £0.06) Hero has 8:heart: 8:spade:

      CO raises to £0.04, BTN calls £0.04, SB calls £0.03, Hero ???

      Call for set value or sqeeze? If squeeze then how big bet size is good?
      Against squeezing my biggest concern is short stack on CO.

      I'm not squeezing 88 or 99 here. Just set mine with those. Maybe you can squeeze with TT but I'm usually not thrilled with squeezing TT unless I can confidently shove it vs a 4bet, or if I just know that someone is going to call the 3b with a ton of worse hands (especially if there's a fish).

      I guess at NL2 everyone can be considered kind of weak so I think squeezing TT here by default is fine.

      Biggest mistake at microstakes is calling too much and I would reckon that you end up getting 2 or 3 callers really often and that sucks in a 3b pot with 88 when you don't hit your set.

      If I had TT+/AJ+/KQ here I would just squeeze to 30 cents
