      i thought the CB could get value from the other opponent although the villian in question only had 99 and TT where i could bluffbet. i thought that his range was very much weighted towards high pocket pairs as well as the A and the K. the final choice would have been to bet the flop for value against blinds and c/f on turn and river

      I'd rather barrel $10-$12 on turn to get rid of KQ, JQ, AJ, AQ, QT, QQ, TT, 99 etc. I think on river you will get called more as a bluff catch by a thinking player (or a total fish :P )

      I think b/f once is fine and then giving up
      With 88 you really have not a lot of equity that you should consider barreling him on the turn and once he called flop he might also call again on the turn
      I´d likely not bet river, since there are not too many better hands that you can make him fold, maybe some QJ/JT type hands. You have some showdown value so I´d rather c/f river
