      Given how many hands in his range are better than mine now I think that shoving might be a little too light + that he might fold his 2pair and worse vs a shove.

      What do you think about bet/folding ~5$ in order to get value from the part of his range that I beat and also be able to fold against a c/r.

      since 8h is the worst card in the deck, you can´t really bet there for value. betting small might induce bluffraises and if you bet more then he would likely not call with worse hands.

      best regards,
