      Hello acceleration123,

      Depends on the opponents, I guess both plays are doable. Isolating with 88 is fine as well while 88 is pretty strong. Or if you ain't that good with them postflop then you could just Check it and take a look at the flop and start building up the pot when you do hit.

      Best regards.

      Well, personally, I prefer taking down preflop what I can :D

      Then just raise it up. Even if you hit your set it will be a lot easier to build up the pot.
