      Hero (CO): $37.90 (189.5 bb)
      BTN: $20 (100 bb)
      SB: $26.77 (133.9 bb)
      BB: $27.25 (136.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 8 8
      Hero raises to $0.60, BTN folds, SB calls $0.50, BB folds

      Flop: ($1.40) 9 4 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.80, SB raises to $3.40, Hero calls $2.60

      Turn: ($8.20) 7 (2 players)
      SB bets $4.10, Hero calls $4.10

      River: ($16.40) Q (2 players)
      SB bets $12.30, Hero folds

      $16.40 pot ($0.82 rake)
      Final Board: 9 4 5 7 Q
      Hero mucked 8 8 and lost (-$8.10 net)
      SB mucked and won $15.58 ($7.48 net)

      Is this a clear fold on the flop because that 3bet is so massive? I felt like he's never doing this for value apart from maybe 67 with no spades so i decided to call him.

      Turn improves my hand somewhat so i decided once again to call. I get the feeling that this is just a fold on the flop though. It looks like a flush draw line to me tbh just based on the bet sizings

      I would just fold flop especially at micros.

      1. RaIse size is really huge so u should defend less
      2. U have no info on villain

      I suppose he is going to be more polarized here at nl25 rather than nl400 (some merged checkraises) pr nl2 (raising cos he has top pair which feels like the nuts) so calling w 88 isnt too bad but i think that given the lack of info and the huge size you should presume that you are gonna get barreled a ton.
