      Make it bigger preflop if you're going to squeeze at all, I'd go with $0.18 at least.

      As played it's fine, your hand has no value postflop but you can potentially make him fold slightly better underpairs due to the flop texture, as well as overcards to your 88 that have a 25% chance of improving to beat you if you start to check it down. There are benefits in people believing you for the A when you squeeze as well, even if microstakes players aren't usually that paranoid, it makes the rare level 2 thinkers out there less likely to think you're full of shit when you squeeze.

      Hope it helps.
