      He folds to 3bet a lot, so I didn't want to isolate against better hands preflop, so call.
      Now he raises small, but I don't believe he has a jack somehow, his small raise looks like he has FD and want cheaply bluff me. The big problem is that if he is that smart he could easily bluff me on other streets. But maybe he is not that smart yet so I am hoping he gives up, so call to reevaluate.

      What do you think there?

      I think b/c flop is fine, since he would make there often also moves smt like AK and if you b/c then he would shut down.
      Personally prefer 3-betting from SB since I don´t want first to play oop, second 88 is ahead of his opening range and you likely would take pot down postflop even if he calls your 3-bet ip
