      BTN: $6.20 (62 bb)
      SB: $12.35 (123.5 bb)
      BB: $13.51 (135.1 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $11.02 (110.2 bb)
      MP: $9.75 (97.5 bb)
      CO: $14.21 (142.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with 8 8
      Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.75) T 5 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, BTN raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1

      Turn: ($3.75) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $2, Hero calls $2

      River: ($7.75) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $2.40, Hero calls $2.40

      $12.55 pot ($0.56 rake)
      Final Board: T 5 5 5 2
      BTN showed T K and won $11.99 ($5.79 net)
      Hero showed 8 8 and lost (-$6.20 net)

      Very first hand with villain, although based on his stacksizeing, he is a fish.

      I just hate these kind of spots. Im OOP, but i have a decent hand, and would he raise a T here? Probably most tens are just calling. What to do here?

      Hey Absolutism,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I agree that many fish love to raise these boards but they usually have a piece of the board like a pair or draw. I doubt that many pairs or worse hands play like this on flop/turn/river so we should be folding.

      And I see plenty of fish that raise Tx on such boards so I would not assume that he has none. For me the flop is bet/fold without info.
