      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $0.72
      Hero:
      $10.00

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:diamond: , 8:diamond:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, SB raises to $0.72 (All-In), BB folds, Hero calls $0.32.

      Final Pot: $1.54

      - Late position steal except I didn't notice that SB is only sitting with $0.72. If I notice this would it be better not to steal because he is likely to move in light?

      - As played should I make this call? I can see him moving in with weaker aces but my hand isn't too strong.

      Edit: - I'm thinking that bet/fold with these pot odds will probably be far too weak. This situation actually very profitable if I assume he will move with almost any two cards? (61% equity) Is this realistic? I do not understand the mentality of these extremely short stacked players.

      You hand is strong enough to beat the blinds. If you didn't notice he has only 7BB raising to 4BB is OK. Next time just put him all-in preflop.
      About calling the extra 0.32c , easy call as you explained yourself.

      Hello,

      Nice hand, well played. I would likely Call there also, most likely for image but ye you aren't getting that much on lower limits but still. :P I think he is capable of pushing with worse according to his stack.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
