      Preflop: Hero is SB with 8 8
      UTG raises to $0.15, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.13, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.35) 5 5 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.24, Hero calls $0.24

      Turn: ($0.83) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.55, Hero calls $0.55

      River: ($1.93) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, UTG calls $1

      Villain is unknown.

      On the flop I decided to call, which is pretty standard I think.

      On the turn, I decided to call again. However, I'm not sure if I really like this. The reason I called is because he might be betting some Ax with As here as well which I might still beat. Plus against his strong pairs I still have some added equity with the flush draw. But like I said, not sure if I like it.

      As played, on the river I decided to lead out to not give him the chance to check behind 1 pair type hands.

      turn - check/call is fine hes probably betting this scare card pretty often

      river - i dont like the donk here, whatever hes calling with is probably betting again, and hes also betting some bluffs on the J turn scare card and we can check/raise here for value.
