      MP: $55.67 (222.7 bb)
      CO: $18.05 (72.2 bb)
      BTN: $25.99 (104 bb)
      Hero (SB): $29.97 (119.9 bb)
      BB: $63.55 (254.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 8 8
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.62, Hero calls $0.52, BB calls $0.37

      Flop: ($1.86) 8 2 K (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, BTN bets $1, Hero calls $1, BB raises to $3.50, BTN folds, Hero calls $2.50

      Turn: ($9.86) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks

      River: ($9.86) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.25, BB calls $3.25


      BB was 19/16/7 over 471
      FtCB: F - 20, T - 17(6)
      AG% - 39 (53/35/17)

      I called twice as it didn't make sense for BB to raise. If he has 22 money is going in anyways, he never has KK so mostly he has some weird K8s or a bluff. I called to let him bluff.

      K is a bad card as K8 now beats me, but I'm still getting it in anyway. Plan was to x/shove and hope he calls with some weird Kx.

      When villain checked I figured he has a bluff and I hoped to induce him with my small bet. Maybe a check would have worked better?

      Preflop: I would just 3-bet this, remember that you should avoid having a calling range in SB as much as possible.

      Flop: Calling is fine

      River: What do you expect villain to raise the Flop and call the River with? You don't rep any busted draws at all, you have KX or better here. I think you should just go for a c/r all-in.
