      BB: $1 (50 bb)
      UTG: $1.97 (98.5 bb)
      MP: $4.34 (217 bb)
      CO: $1.08 (54 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $1.91 (95.5 bb)
      SB: $1.68 (84 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 8 6
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, SB calls $0.05, BB folds

      Villain is 61/22 over 50 hands. 3 bet of 5%. Open 86s from BTN looking to steal blinds or take the pot down on flop with a c-bet.

      Flop: ($0.14) 8 4 T (2 players)
      SB bets $0.07, Hero calls $0.07

      Flop middle pair. Wary of flush draw, here I think to call 1 street and potentially fold. Lots of Tx hands and draws in his range.

      Turn: ($0.28) 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.14, Hero calls $0.14

      Pick up some equity on the river with a flush draw and a gutshot straight draw. Feels like I've put myself in a tricky spot though?

      River: ($0.56) 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.20, SB raises to $0.40, Hero raises to $1.64 and is all-in, SB calls $1.01

      Hit straight here, looking to get paid off by all his Tx hands, possible 2 pairs (T8) and missed draws. When he min raises, I'm struggling, I'm not folding, he could be doing this with worse hands, so I decide to shove...yeah. 96 and J9 do make better straights here, but the way he played it I wasn't convinced.

      Results:[spoiler] $3.38 pot ($0.22 rake)
      Final Board: 8 4 T 5 7
      [SPOILER]Hero mucked 8 6 and won $0.00 (-$1.68 net)
      SB showed 9 J and won $3.16 ($1.48 net)

      Cooler or poor play?

      Preflop, having this guy on the SB and also BB looking fishy-like I would defnitely fold this.

      I prefer folding the flop right away here. We just have middle pair with such a low kicker and a couple of backdoors, so quite a lot of bad turn cards to come.

      As played, calling the turn is standard.

      When he checks the river I a definitely betting bigger here - 2/3-3/4.
      When he minraises I prefer just calling. I don't think he is going to stack off with too much worse hands here.
