      i was sure that he would open raise preflop with a hand like 99+ and when i turned the full house i really thought i would have the best hand since it is extremely unlikely he has a queen. unfortunately he did, but did i play this okay? i considered shoving on the river for a moment but i thought that since anything can happen i should probably just call to be on the safe side...

      Standard raise as strong hand as 88 pf
      Postflop b/c can be reasonable if you think player is making there moves. If not, then you should fold, since they would not raise with worse hands for value
      Shove is bad, since you only get called by better hands
