      Preflop: Hero is SB with 8:spade: , 8:club:
      UTG2 calls $0.02, 3 folds, CO calls $0.02, BU raises to $0.11, Hero raises to $0.33, 3 folds, BU calls $0.22.

      Final Pot: $1.42

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      BU shows three-of-a-kind, jacks (Ad Jh)
      Hero shows (8s 8c)

      BU wins with three-of-a-kind, jacks (Ad Jh)

      I just want to check something here, even on the flops like this when I have trash, I again should cbet against 1 opponent on somewhat dry flop (I know there is flushdraw possible, but that's it) right? And since my bet would have been more than half of my stack left, I go AI - even tho I had like trash?

      Newbie MSS here,
      Thanks!

      Hey ExtremeAce,

      Yes you should cBet against one here on this flop. if he calls you with a flushdraw you are still slightly ahead to make it profitable

      You can also decide to push preflop because you raise >40% of your stack which is probably the best with 88

      Best regards,
      Gerv
