      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      UTG: $1.78 (17.8 bb)
      MP: $13.75 (137.5 bb)
      CO: $2.77 (27.7 bb)
      BTN: $10.55 (105.5 bb)
      Hero (SB): $11.67 (116.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with T T
      CO posts BB OOP, UTG calls $0.10, MP folds, CO checks, BTN raises to $0.50, Hero calls $0.45, BB calls $0.40, UTG calls $0.40, CO folds

      Flop: ($2.15) 8 6 2 (4 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG bets $0.10, BTN raises to $1.22, Hero raises to $2.34, BB folds, UTG calls $1.18, BTN folds

      Turn: ($5.93) 2 (2 players)
      River: ($5.93) 3 (2 players)

      $5.93 pot ($0.29 rake)
      Final Board: 8 6 2 2 3
      BB mucked and lost (-$0.50 net)
      UTG showed 7 6 and lost (-$1.78 net)
      BTN mucked and lost (-$1.72 net)
      Hero showed T T and won $5.64 ($3.86 net)

      All the short stacks are fish. Preflop I choose not to 3bet because fish are unlikely to call and I only isolate myself vs a strong BU range.

      Does my min raise on the flop makes sense? I know this board misses much of BU's range but by min raising 1) I can make him fold his equity from over cards. 2)rep a set 3) Make a much easier decision on the turn (c/f if he calls my raise)

      I felt that if I call and an overcard comes on turn/river i need to c/f very often. If I was IP i think just calling is much better though.

      Hi Tommy,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I actually like your play there. Our move looks strong (as a cold 3-bet) and while we don't get better to fold but we can charge draws and isolate versus the fish all while we get BTN to fold part of his equity in the pot.
