      I know I should have raised to $1.25 to start with but I'm just curious as to how to play the flop.

      I didn't want to get called by a donk on the flop and then not know where I stand on the turn with a standard 0.5-0.67 pot raise.

      However its also a lot to invest when I am potentially crushed.(It seems a great spot to slowplay for the villian)

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $5.00

      0.1/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.65 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 8:spade: , 8:club:
      UTG1 calls $0.25, 4 folds, Hero raises to $1.00, 3 folds, UTG1 calls $0.75.

      Flop: ($2.35) 3:heart: , Q:diamond: , Q:club: (2 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero bets $4.00 (All-In), UTG1 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.35

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two pairs, queens and eights (8s 8c)

      Hero wins with two pairs, queens and eights (8s 8c)

      I bet/call flop $1.25 or so flop given ur preflop play. Its pretty dry board.

      If an A comes on turn you don't nescaserily have to turn your hand into a bluff by 2nd barreling. You can check and let him bluff you on river if he's loose enough to do that.

      Yeah, I also make a regular 2/3 potsize c-bet here and call if he re-raises. It's very unlikely that he's holding a Q, so you shouldn't be afraid of that.

      Hey nworb200,

      it's very unlikely for villain to limp/call 99+ UTG and also very unlikely he's holding a Q here. So, just bet 1.25-1.5$ and go broke if he check/raises. If he calls flop and checks turn I'm pushing all-in. Pushing flop is overbetting and should be avoided, specially on such dry board where's no need to protect.

      Regards,
