      $0.25/$0.5 No Limit Holdem
      5 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      Hero ($107.25)
      CO ($51.30)
      BTN ($35.41) 59/1/2
      SB ($79.52) 19/17/3.1 , 3bet PF 7%, cbet 86%
      BB ($51.75)

      Pre-flop: ($0.75, 5 players) Hero is UTG T:club: 8:club:
      Hero raises to $2, 1 fold, BTN calls $2, SB raises to $6, 1 fold, Hero calls $4, BTN calls $4

      Flop: T:heart: 3:spade: 2:heart: ($18.75, 3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, BTN bets $18.50, SB folds, Hero ??

      Most interesting hand of yesterdays session.

      I call the squeeze preflop because of 2 reasons:
      - squeeze is pretty small, looks to me like a stealsqueeze because of fish in the pot.
      - expect buttonfish to call also preflop: decent odds.
      - T8s is a playable hand postflop, can hit in many ways.

      But now the flop:
      SB squeezer obviously had AQ or worse.
      Can I call (would mean shove for few $$ more) in this spot with our TP and silly kicker?

      That´s why T8s is trouble hand, because you hit T or ( on low board you likely call one bet on the flop and then decide on the turn)
      I´d just fold T8s pf to 3-bet
      As played: I´d shove against shortstack potsize bet. Often he has draw or smaller pp.
