This is a discussion on Pot Odds Mistake? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; Really kinda rethinking this. I felt I had good equity and called... perhaps I shouldn't have? Any constructive criticism for this hand?
GAME #3000000005: Texas
You are playing WAY too aggressive with a small pocket pair. You should NOT be raising pre-flop at those stakes with a small pocket pair(At higher stakes you can simply to balance your range). Second off, you should not be betting $0.10 into a pot of $1, no one will ever fold you can only lose money. Check the flop, and once he 2bet you with a pot sized bet you should be throwing your hand away, you already know you are beat. Turn/River should be check/fold. A king is a BIG part of your villains range and you also lose to an 8, 9, or higher pocket pair. Their are no draws in your villains range so their is no need in you being aggressive.

i was going to say initially too passive...the 10cent race should have been 50 and it might have done something, but id abandon after seeing so many overs.

re: Poker & Pot Odds Mistake?
Don’t mind the raise - with only one limper I think a bigger raise takes the pot for you often (just bumping to 2 BBs won’t).
Once he re-raised you, fold. You are beat A TON of the time.
After the flop, the raise isn’t a bad idea to show strength in case he was bluffing, but again, you were probably already beat. Then when he re-raises, it’s (again) definitely time to fold.
Rinse and repeat on the river.
So yeah, you vastly overestimated your equity. You can fold those middle pairs almost any time someone reraises you and DEFINITELY if you get reraised on the flop with two overcards and you missed your set.

You totally ignored the strength of the re-raiser on every street against your mid low pair when you first rose preflop.
Once the flop was drawn and your weak low mid pair did not improve to a set was the time to slow down, but instead you choose raise a min raise and then call a very large re-raise. At that point you were TOLD that your hand was no good, but you ignored every single clue.
It was not clear why you would be so Gorilla Aggressive against a player who was telling you they had a Real Strong hand.

Preflop you call the big bet with 40 into a pot of 72 (before). Less than 2-1
With implied odds I'm not totally adverse to that pf call, and 3 cards to come. But I am now leary, because of that big RR.
Then the flop comes with 2 overs. You put up a meagre blocking bet. Yeah, it's amazing how often those work, but in this case, villain shows he don't care at all what you are pretending to represent. He at least represents TPGK. Your call shows me you 'wish' to much. The rest of the hand is showing you that you 'wish' to much.
Do yourself a favor, drop to 6 max, where your line will work a little more often. But stop spewing on a flop with 2 overs with only 2 (x2) outs.
Learn to love to fold, before you learn to love to 3 bet!
You can make a flimsy argument to see the flop at a high cost here, but with the action involved, you have to give it up.

re: Poker & Pot Odds Mistake?
1. Don't min raise preflop , either go bigger or flat as Seat 10 going to call/re-raise 100% if BB call.
2. Flop: No point donk bet here and way too small which means effectively a check
3. OOP you have to give up this hand when villian raise your flop bet unless you are facing a maniac then your hand might still be ok.
4: As played I don't like float turn bet as your hand has improved but still weak equity. Even if you have 89s, you can just wait till last aggressor to bet and raise/call all-in.
