      .Thought he has 8x,88 possibly, as he reraised me on the turn, so just called hoping that the board will pair.On the river,Villain showed extra tightness before , so i folded.RIght or wrong?

      Though spot I would not put villain on 88, but rather on AA, KK or 99, 77.
      I would probably shove turn, cause villain could play aces that way and if he has 88, then I´ve 10 outs.
      If you called turn, then you should also call river (unless if you put him exactly 88), because 4 doesn´t change anything and imo bet/fold turn on that board is too weak with set

      Well 4 gives him 3 as an option for str8.It also gives him the flush, if he was playing for one.
      Isnt a set pretty beat by now? Anything he can beat is an overpair?There are also overset possibilities, isnt the point to keep the pot small if there are a lot of cards that beat you ?

      Why UTG should c/r with nut flushdraw on the turn or 3x?
      I guess folding isn´t wrong on the river, but I´m happy to put all the money in on the turn. If he has higher set or 8x, then fine, but he could easily play that way any overpair.
      If you put him set on the turn, then you should fold to c/r, but on ten handed games itś hard to put UTG 99, 88 or 77, because most of the players would limp with these hands.
      So there can´t be so many hands beat us, rather you are ahead here and should be happy to get money all-in on the turn with set.
      If he has higher set or 8, then it is just cooler, but making these laydowns on NL 10 isn´t profitable imo.
      Ofcourse it is always player dependent and if player acts, like he has set, then folding turn/river is fine.

      I would have gone all in after being re-raised on the turn. Unless he had 8x, I doubt he'd call, and I doubt he'd play any 8x other than 88 like that. So with only 88 to really worry about, I'd have pushed.

      Not sure about your action on the last card. I wouldn't have put him on 3x, so the extra straight possibility wouldn't have worried me, but the flush is scary.

      Tough spot. I like the call on the turn, but I'd also call the river. I just don't think he c/minR AK of spades or something like this on the turn. The only hand with an 8 raising UTG is 88. He may make a stupid bluff or have 55-77
