      I slowplayed because it was a dry flop and also limped pot.. Most likely opponents holding broadway or speculative hands.. So should I slowplay or bet to try and get more value?

      Hello cheekopeh,

      Preflop: You may as well isolate here, 88 is pretty strong hand to do that.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd just bet the flop to start building up the pot. Otherwise seems to be fine, although sometimes seeing the player being very bad you might as well consider just shoving directly.

      Best regards.
