      80 hands 21/11/ 3 3b

      BB: $20.29 (101.4 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $20 (100 bb)
      MP: $17.68 (88.4 bb)
      CO: $16.68 (83.4 bb)
      BTN: $4.91 (24.6 bb)
      SB: $7.25 (36.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with J J
      Hero raises to $0.60, MP folds, CO raises to $1.40, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.80

      Flop: ($3.10) T 3 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.40, Hero calls $1.40

      Turn: ($5.90) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      River: ($5.90) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.75, CO calls $1.75

      $9.40 pot ($0.47 rake)
      Final Board: T 3 8 4 5
      Hero mucked J J and lost (-$4.55 net)
      CO showed A A and won $8.93 ($4.38 net)

      Again, folding pre against somewhat tight would be the best line. Can we call to set mine and to play straight forward - passively post flop?

      Flop is a must call, especially when he makes it so small.

      If he bets 1/2 T do we still call? I probably would.

      I decide to go for small block bet to get value from...while I was playing I was thinking of AK and 99 but he's not calling this R with first hand and not 3b pre with second one. :(
      I did small block bet so he wouldn't do a big bet on the R. But seeing it now I'm not sure what are we vbeting. His hand sure looks like AK.

      It's close but preflop against that sizing I would call too. Postflop though I would most flop bets with an overpair but then I would just try to keep the pot small. I don't like leading river in a spot where you cannot get value. If you think he cannot bet worse, just check/fold.
