      UTG1 calls $0.02, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, CO folds, BU calls $0.10, 2 folds, UTG1 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.33) T, 4, 8 (3 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero bets $0.20, BU calls $0.20, UTG1 folds.

      Turn: ($0.73) 5 (2 players)

      River: ($1.57) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, BU raises to $2.23(All-In), Hero calls $0.55(All-In).

      Final Pot: $5.35.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows three of a kind, eights(8d 8c).
      BU shows a flush, jack high(9s Js).

      BU wins with a flush, jack high(9s Js).

      Is it just bad beat or my weak river play. Fold to river 3bet or to call the shove because I have so little money left?
      Thanks, :f_love:

      I was going to say that there were 2 SD out there on the flop before I saw the results... so I would bet a little more. On the turn... you definitely should have bet more in case he picked up a SD or FD. When the river comes, you have no choice but to shove since you wouldn't even have a pot sized bet left.

      Well I think you gave him very very good odds to call on the turn, and he had a pretty strong draw, OESD + FD. You have to call his 3bet shove yes... no other way.

      Thanks for your response. He had a monster draw and completed his draw. My flop bet should be also higher.
