      Preflop: I don't like the 4bet at all, do you have any 3bet stats on him? If yes then give them also. Otherwise I would likely just fold after his 3bet. A8o is just too often dominated by any other Ax hand which he can likely Call.

      As played
      Flop: Pretty standard CBet, we have to bet out here to protect our hand and also extract value from weaker ones.

      Best regards,

      Preflop: he has 17% 3bet
      Co vs Button needs to be balanced, if i do not play some 4bet bluffs here i have to reduce my stealing range a lot or go broke really light.
      If i 4bet bluff i think A8 is a decent hand because of the card removal, i dont except any hands that domninate me to call, that might be true for 3bet but this is a 4bettet pot.

      Im not sure if i have to bet to extract value from weaker heands, if he did indeed call with some strong Ax he is going to bet.
      If he has a flushdraw with the pot beeing this size he is most likely going to push. Again i do not think that protection is as important asbluffinduce at this potsize, however u could legitimately ask what kind of hand he could bluff with at this spot

      Anyway thanks for your analysis, is kaitz on vacation ?
