      iPoker - $0.50 NL - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BTN: $31.40
      SB: $72.25 VP:22/PR:19/AFq:92 over 124 hands.
      BB: $33.73
      Hero (UTG): $78.62
      CO: $55.15

      SB posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero has 8:diamond: 8:club:

      Hero raises to $2.00, fold, fold, SB raises to $5.00, fold, Hero calls $3.00

      Flop: ($10.50, 2 players) 5:heart: 9:spade: 8:heart:
      SB bets $9.00, Hero raises to $37.50, SB raises to $67.25, Hero calls $29.75

      Turn: ($145.00, 2 players) K:diamond:

      River: ($145.00, 2 players) 5:diamond:

      Reasons why I called his 3B OOP:
      We are deep (well more or less)
      his 3B is very small
      He is very aggressive (so I will get paid off nicely if I hit)
      Are these reasons enough to call 3B OOP?

      You can profitably play a pp for set value vs a full sized 3-bet - in this case 7-8$, if villains 3-betting range is tight - 4-5% 3-bet - because you will have much better implied odds.

      With a smaller 3-bet it is even more profitable.

      Nice hand.

      yeah, very standard spot to call 3-bet
      Don´t like your flop raise. You´re never bluffing there and although he is likely not folding overpairs he is likely also shoving there smt like 77
      I´d prefer making it 21$ on the flop and then give him more option to shove that "bluffraise" with wider range
