      Could/should this hand be played differently?
      I wasn't completely sure, that it was the right decision to move all in on the turn, after the 8 came off?

      Like the play all the way down to the turn with the 8, where I would say that you can't really get away from the hand with the amount you have left behind. Even if you check and he goes all-in I think you would still have the odds to call. Betting 2/3 the pot makes no sense as you would have to call an all-in bet anyway.

      I would have gone for the c/r all-in on the flop. Still 2 players to act behind you and they could bet lots of draws, aces or bluffs.

      Fold preflop.
      You can limp with pocket pairs when you get 5:1 pot odds. With SC you need more pot odds to limp profitably (not sure how much since I hardly ever limp with SC).

      On the flop you must bet, because the board is drawy and you can't check an unraised pot here for several reasons:
      - You must make the pot bigger, because you want to get all-in with your 2pair here.
      - You must protect your hand against draws
      - You can't let Villain have another freecard, because you can get yourself in trouble on the turn then.

      I would have bet $0.40 on the flop.

      On the turn it's an easy push, you can go broke with 2 pair.

      Even a limp with 3 limpers before you is ok if you've decent postflop skills.

      Here you did well. Betting full pot on the flop makes things easier, but they aren't really tough the way they are now. Nice hand.

      Ok, never mind about folding preflop then :D
