      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 8:diamond: , 8:heart:
      4 folds, MP2 calls $0.04, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.04, SB folds, BB raises to $0.16, MP2 calls $0.12, Hero calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.50) 2:club: , 3:heart: , 7:heart: (3 players)

      At the beginning I thaught he had AK or something and he is just trying to get the pot, but what do you think?

      Good fold. U don't want to get involved into big pot with this hand. If he do it frequently wait for stronger hand to punish him.

      Hi timukasr!

      It looks like he has an even stronger overpair than you. Your raise looks really strong after his flopbet and the call from MP2. Since he doesn't care about that I assume that he had you beat. Nice hand!
      As rubysilesia already mentioned: If he makes these moves more often you can play back at him. But not in this spot.

      One question: Why did you only limp preflop? It's not a bad play to play for setvalue, but sometimes I like raising here.....

      Good luck at the tables!

      he shouldve folded his pair preflop, he doesnt get setvalue, and it's a hard hand to play on an empty flop.

      we dont know hero's and villains stack, so we cant really tell. However 4bb is worth a call preflop trying to hit a set.

      Call 15: You only find this with pocket pairs. Here you call, if your stack, as well as the stack of your opponent, is at least 15 times as large as the raise that you have to call. Otherwise, you fold.
