      KiKonon bets $0.50, Hero raises to $1, KiKonon calls $0.50

      KiKonon checks, Hero bets $1.25, KiKonon goes all-in $3.50, Hero calls $2.25

      River: Q:diamond: ($9.50, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      Final Pot: $9.50
      KiKonon shows two pair, Queens and Fives
      Q:heart: 5:spade:
      Hero shows a pair of Eights
      6:diamond: 8:heart:

      KiKonon wins $9.04 (net +$4.29)

      Hero lost $4.75

      Since we were HU I gave him slim chances to have another 8 and since his stats were VPIP 70, PFR 25 I doubt he would limp a pocket.
      Should I play this any other way ?

      Thx

      Hey asmirovic,

      Imo your hand is too weak to make a reraise on the flop because of your kicker. I would just call flop bet and evaluate turn and probably call another bet if he would decide to fire a second barrel.

      One thing you can try is to raise 3 big blinds preflop, because SB opencomplete is a very weak play and you will quite often take the pot down preflop even though your hand isn't strong enough to raise it, however if you notice your opponent doesn't give up preflop often enough then just check behind like you did.

      Regards,
