      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with 8:spade: , 8:heart:
      UTG1 folds, Hero calls $0.10, MP1 raises to $0.50, 6 folds, Hero calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.15) 5:spade: , 8:club: , 9:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $0.90, Hero raises to $2.70, MP1 raises to $9.63 (All-In), Hero calls $6.93.

      Turn: ($20.41) J:heart:
      River: ($20.41) K:club: (1 players)

      Final Pot: $20.41

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows three of a kind, eights (8s 8h)
      MP1 shows a pair of aces (As Ah)

      Hero wins with three of a kind, eights (8s 8h)

      Thoughts: I call preflop for implied set value.

      Flop I am unsure about my reraise. Against large pairs I am drawing them in but against overcards I have just scared off hands that I am well ahead of?
