      Villain is 28/22 with 3bet of 10 and AF 2. 500 hands.
      My limp was forced due to sitting out and having to post.
      This guy had frequently attacked limpers (nothing wrong with that) from late postition.
      I think I played this pretty ugly.

      Hello trickybob,

      If it's forced blind then why don't you just wait for BB to come? :) That's what I usually do.

      Preflop: Guess I'd be rather inclined to fold my hand while we even have to play OOP. Of course the 98s looks a great hand but it's not that easy to play profitable.

      As played
      Postflop: Most likely I'd be rather inclined to fold it on flop. Even if he doesn't have the Ax type of hand it's still very likely that our 8pair is vulnerable. As played the turn of course nothing to say, just got lucky. :D

      Best regards.
