      BTN ($4.65)
      SB ($5.95)
      BB ($27.10)

      Pre-flop: ($0.15, 5 players) Hero is UTG 8:spade: 8:club:
      Hero calls $0.10, 3 folds, BB checks

      Flop: 8:heart: A:heart: 3:club: ($0.25, 2 players)

      River: 9:spade: ($8.05, 2 players)
      BB checks, BB says "dude just check", BB says "i'[ll call anyways", Hero goes all-in $7.60, BB folds

      Final Pot: $8.05

      Hero wins $15.30 ( won +$3.70 )
      BB lost -$4

      I didn't raise my 88 pre flop because i had a lot of good hands at that table and had a PFR of 28 in 30 hands, and my opponents begun to react aggressive. After i reevaluate the hand i think that if i would bet something like 4,70$ on the river villain would call.

      Definantly, though with that kind of image not getting called could even have won you money in the long run, if you kept hitting cards. Loose maniac is a good image to have as TAG, so long as we remember not to steal / cbet quite so often (as people call down more often).

      Raise preflop! In a 5-handed game there is no way you should open limp 88 from UTG, no matter what image you have. Raise it up!

      Postflop, I like how you played this hand. When you have less than a potsize bet on the river, you should just shove. :)

      Raise pf
      Raise more on turn so he can call his FD
      Now shove river with bigger pot, he has harder time folding an A
