      SB ($0.78)
      BB ($3.30)
      UTG ($0.82)
      MP1 ($0.97)
      Hero (MP2) ($5)
      CO ($4.51)
      Button ($1.88)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, K
      2 folds, Hero bets $0.08, 3 folds, BB calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.17) 10, 8, A (2 players)
      BB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.30, BB calls $0.20

      Total pot: $6.61 | Rake: $0.30

      Preflop and flop are ok I'd say.
      On the turn he did overbet the pot, but as he raised on the flop I wouldn't say he was on a straight draw.

      Bet/calling is a line frequently used by the fish to draw to something. They're afraid you'll like bet pot so they try and make a blockbet instead to see a cheap card, then you raise and they end up calling anyway because they can't lay down a draw ever. With such a strong hand i'd raise the flop bigger, probably to $0.4.

      On the turn he completely changes his line and suddenly overbets, usually he either has some top pair that is now afraid of the texture or he has a flush/straight, i don't think shoving serves much of a purpose unless you really skew his range towards top pair, which imo won't be correct most of the time. I'd just call the turn, check or fold a blank river and call or shove a spade river obviously.

      Hope it helps.
