      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (6 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop | saw showdown

      CO ($12)
      Button ($11.70)
      Hero (SB) ($10)
      BB ($17.55) 46/6/0.6/40 68 hands
      UTG ($19.70)
      MP ($11.85)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 3:diamond: 3:spade:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, BB calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.80) 8:club: 10:spade: 8:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, BB calls $0.50

      He may call a lot of hands Preflop. I think this is a good flop for a cbet, though he isn't folding much to flop cbet. But its quite possible that i have the best hand here.

      Turn: ($1.80) K:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.15, BB raises to $3, Hero folds

      I think the K is a good card for a second Barrel. It might scare him if he has a T or called the Flop with a PP. Is it ok to fire a second Barrel here?

      Total pot: $4.10 | Rake: $0.20

      It's a bad idea to try bluff someone who is just going to call anyways. I'd just complete the SB and just check/fold the flop etc. A calling station only needs to hit a pair of 4's or better to beat you unless you hit your 3. By putting more money into the pot here you are just digging yourself into a bigger hole and next thing you know you're on the river, shoving your last chips in one last futile attempt to get your opponent to fold!!!

      i would cbet a little bit more here since this is a board where draws will call . the k is a good card to 2nd barrel but if you do it bet a little bit more ( close to 1.5$) because a t will call a small bet like this most of the times
