      Hi tadejusce,

      basically i don't like your 88 call on SB here. You won't hit your 8 enough here and even when you will hit it you will have problems extracting enough value.

      On SH game Open Raise range are wider so when you hit your set ppl doesn't have anything many times and there you won't extract as much value as you want to. In FR game it is slightly different.

      I would just fold it preflop.

      As played you cannot do much here and you really were unlucky that villain has 99.

      Hello tadejusce,

      I'd most likely start betting already on the the flop but otherwise I wouldn't 3bet on the turn cause you could already be against straight there, rather just Call and reevaluate it on the turn. ;)

      Best Regards.
