[NL2-NL10] Overpair and gutshot - too aggro?

      I thought I'd gamble on the flop...

      $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Holdem
      8 players
      Converted at

      UTG ($2.25)
      UTG 1 ($8.16)
      MP1 ($4.65)
      MP2 ($5.69)
      CO ($3.77)
      Hero ($1.32)
      SB ($4.03)
      BB ($3.74)

      Pre-flop: ($0.06, 8 players) Hero is BTN T:spade: T:club:
      UTG raises to $0.08, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.24, 1 fold, BB calls $0.20, UTG calls $0.16

      Flop: 8:diamond: 7:spade: 6:diamond: ($0.74, 3 players)
      BB checks, UTG bets $0.08, Hero raises to $0.52...

      Was I being too aggressive here considering the very draw-heavy flop?

      Here you have a chum in the pool with you and you are most likely ahead.
      If you are beat by a str8 or set on the flop so be it, you can still suck out and make a bigger hand. On the flop I ignore his tiny raise and bet all-in. He could have so many hands that can out draw you, so you must give him bad odds to call. His flop bet stinks like a block bet. In addition, the BB is still in the hand and could very easily have hit a small piece as well, so no cheep cards for him!
      When considering my advice, keep in mind that I am uber-aggresive player post-flop :D
