      Is it ok to call bet on flop ? Or it just ain´t worth ? Don´t tell me about the river, I didn´t see the flush completed since I was only focused on the King card, and my level of concentration was low.

      I think I would bet/fold since it's pretty good flop for 88. As played - I would check/fold.

      Howdy,

      I'd raise preflop.

      As played with limping I think we may just fold as we were looking just to setmine and that didn't work. Board is drawy ofc and he may be betting draws as no one have showed interest in this pot, but we may aswell own ourselves against Tx + we're OOP and there's a ton of bad cards for us.

      Good luck!

      Hello acceleration123,

      Raising ain't a must on those limits just for the reason that people don't adjust to your limps, so therefore it's totally fine from UTG.

      Best regards.

      Yes, I know that limping from UTG is very weak play and its like I would say what I am holding, but I don´t think those kind of players are able to realize that anyway. I would raise such PP from EP from NL10+ ... my opinion, but I am open-minded :)
