      Final Pot: $4.26.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a straight, jack high(J T).
      BB shows three of a kind, eights(K 8).

      Hero wins with a straight, jack high(J T).

      Villain is a 28/23/2,5AF/63 hands. Looked like he was trying to steal the pot, and the only hand he could continue with would be 8x, maybe some PPs, so I decided to raise. Barreled the river to make him fold his PPs, but I should have probably just checked back.

      Hey Adsefghijk,

      Preflop call is loose when UTG raises and does not even have a full stack. The only reason I'd call is if there were fish still to act behind who would overcall.

      I'd probably cbet flop IP here, you have ok equity and more than likely some fold equity.

      I think your turn raise is fine apart from your sizing. If you think villain is simply trying to steal, $0.41 would probably bet more than enough to fold him off his hand. $0.74 is simply not getting a good price on your bluff.

      Your comment about trying to fold villain off PP's does not belong with this hand because you had a straight.
