Was this a dumb call?

      This is my first post so I'd like to start out by saying that this website is awesome and that I'm so glad to have found it.

      On to my question though, I was just wondering what you guys think of this hand, did I play it right?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K, T.
      UTG2 calls $0.02, MP1 calls $0.02, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.01, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.1) 8, 5, T (5 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG2 checks, MP1 bets $0.04, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, BB folds, UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0.08.

      Turn: ($0.34) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, MP1 calls $0.20.

      River: ($0.74) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, MP1 raises to $0.80, Hero calls $0.40.

      Final Pot: $2.34.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of tens(K T).
      MP1 shows two pairs, nines and eights(9 8).

      MP1 wins with two pairs, nines and eights(9 8).


      Was there something I should have done differently? Perhaps raised larger on the flop?

      My opponenet in this hand played his cards like he was calling on a flush draw and when he reraised me there at the end I thought he was trying to steal it from me by showing some aggression at the end. Obvioulsy I was wrong so is there something I missed that would have helped me make a better decision here?

      Thnaks for the help!
