      On a small sample (120 hands) villain plays 26/20 and steals a lot from SB. Not much other info.

      SB checks, hero bets $22, SB folds

      Final Pot: $-6
      hero shows
      8:club: A:club:

      hero wins $59.20 (net +$29.20)

      SB lost $8

      I think floating the flop is fine with 2 OC's and BDFD. Turn bet should be fine to, not sure about the sizing tho. When villain c/c Turn I dont think his range is quite weak some pair+gutshot, so against an overbet he should have tough time calling. Makes sense or is it just FPS?

      Preflop both options are fine, I'd choose 3bet above call because also with this hand we can't stand much heat.

      Flop is pretty std indeed and after that we have to bet the turn. His range is indeed kinda capped imo so I'd bet river too but just bit over halfpot. You don't need to overbet.

      Hello jachis,

      Preflop: Depends mainly how loose the range is, you can easily open equilab and see how far your A8s is going to be ahead. Vs unknown we might even want to 3bet over calling but of course calling is fine if you knew him.
      Postflop: Don't like your line at all, what are you trying to represent? Nothing even completed on the river, just maybe few GSs which not sure if are in your range even. If you Bet the turn then don't need to to such a sizing which makes your hand really polarized.

      Best Regards.
