      Are you using any stats while playing?
      Or did you have an extremely good read on him?
      Because else you should just play according to the strategy, that means folding 88 when there is a raise in front of you.

      Unless you have an extremely good read, you shouldn't push this.

      I strongly suggest restealing only with decent stats. If you could've put him on ats at, let's say, 20-25 and higher, it was a good move.

      Yes, 88 are a favourite against AQo, but you have to think about the RANGE of the hands he can be at. If he has a steal range of 8% you shouldn't resteal (even if at this particular one he might have aq)
