      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 114.8 BB (VPIP: 15.96, PFR: 13.83, 3Bet Preflop: 6.82, Hands: 95)
      Hero (SB): 109 BB
      BB: 140.7 BB (VPIP: 43.75, PFR: 37.50, 3Bet Preflop: 25.00, Hands: 18)
      UTG: 77.2 BB (VPIP: 18.18, PFR: 2.27, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 44)
      MP: 93.9 BB (VPIP: 20.00, PFR: 20.00, 3Bet Preflop: 11.11, Hands: 27)
      CO: 106.3 BB (VPIP: 16.67, PFR: 10.90, 3Bet Preflop: 2.99, Hands: 158)

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q:club: A:spade:

      UTG calls 1 BB, fold, fold, BTN raises to 2.5 BB, Hero raises to 8 BB, fold, UTG calls 7 BB, fold

      Flop: (19.5 BB, 2 players) 8:spade: A:heart: 4:spade:
      Hero bets 12.4 BB, UTG calls 12.4 BB

      Turn: (44.3 BB, 2 players) 5:heart:
      Hero bets 21.2 BB, UTG raises to 42.4 BB, Hero raises to 63.6 BB, UTG calls 14.4 BB and is all-in

      River: (157.9 BB, 2 players) 8:club:

      Hero shows Q:club: A:spade: (Two Pair, Aces and Eights)
      (Pre 44%, Flop 6%, Turn 0%)
      UTG shows 8:heart: 8:diamond: (Four of a Kind, Eights)
      (Pre 56%, Flop 94%, Turn 100%)
      UTG wins 150.8 BB

      I think when we bet the turn we're commited. that was the deliberation. I think he'll have draws and Ax that we beat in his range.
      Can we get away from this?

      Stats from villain look quiete as from a reg...
      well he is a bit short, but not really short (77bb)

      As an exploit you can fold this hand vs. a raise on turn...
      that will be very strong hands most of the time...
      Without notes in this case better allways fold, that will save a lot of money to you...

      I would most likely Cbet a little bit smaller on the flop. Half pot seems fair enough against a tight passive looking player. Then you invest less with the same result. The turn is for me an easy fold on his raise. It’s most of the time a tell min raise like this with only a few bb left.

      Advise from the guys above are solid.
      Villain looks tight passive indeed so I wouldn't assume he starts raising you with a draw.

      Yeah I definitely feel I overplayed this one. The thing that threw me off was the fact it's a 3bet pot and we hit TP vs a fishy lookin guy.

      So to recap, half pot flop, half pot/f turn?
