      Hello zghrv,

      My apologizes for this delay because I was attending PokerStrategy's Diamond Party in London last weekend

      About your hand:

      Seems it is better with pocket 88s to either squeeze bigger or to shove. You cover the other 2 players and they mostly perceive you to have AK way more often than any other hand so they will call with their pockets more often.

      Luckily for you , you smash those pockets.

      As played I think we should check/fold or shove the Flop because his calling range might be KK+ but also hands he does not want to get all-in with (KQ/AQ) so Qxx board is a very good board for him mostly

      Best regards,
      Gerv
