      preflop raise was more for bluff as Axs is good to do this I think though he colub be to tight so I' not sure..

      I didn't bet the flop as I didn't see many worse cards that will call.

      turn my plan was to c/r him.

      It's ok to 3bet such a tight guy, if he's folding a lot to 3bets. A8s is behind his opening range, so whenever he calls you're 3bet you're behind. Therefore, only do it if he folds a lot to 3bets.

      And in this spot, I wouldn't do it, as there's the fish behind me IP, which is probably gonna be calling my 3bet a lot and giving me trouble. In this spot I'd opt for value 3bets.

      As played, post flop is fine IMO.

      I probably wouldn't mess with a 18/8's opening range from MP, especially with a fish behind for a few reasons

      - the fish might overcall in position and give you trouble with his wide range and flawed logic, A8s might be too weak to compensate comfortably
      - a suited ace has more value multiway, so using the fish's tendency to overcall by flatting MP's raise to see a 3-way flop makes more sense to me
      - MP's range has to be rather tight to begin with, but knowing that the fish will often overcall his opening in position should make his range even tighter

      As it is, i like your play postflop.

      Hope it helps.
