      NL Holdem $0.20(BB) Replayer
      SB ($20)
      Hero ($45.95)
      UTG ($23.27)
      UTG+1 ($19.36)
      CO ($22.34)
      BTN ($25.47)

      Dealt to Hero 8:club: 8:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.80, fold, Hero raises to $2.60, BTN calls $1.80

      FLOP ($5.30) 7:club: A:club: 3:heart:

      Hero bets $2.90, BTN raises to $5.80, Hero folds

      BTN wins $10.55

      49/11/1.5, steal 25, fold to cbet 44, 55 hands

      I think he could call a 3bet with this

      66+,A5s+,K9s+,Q9s+,J9s+,A9o+,KTo+,QTo+

      so I am little bit ahead, also I want bigger pot in case I hit my set, to have easier time getting his 125 bbs.

      No 3bet is bad. you get completely lost on so many boards OOP with some sort of 2nd or 3rd pair hand. You don't need to build up the pot 100bb deep because you can always checkraise the Flop or Turn and get stacks in by the river.

      I would only 3bet 88 here if I expected to be faced with a 4bet bluff really often, then I can jam over the top since pocket pairs don't play too well postflop and it's good if you can just stick the money in preflop (against wide aggressive ranges).

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      Preflop: Don't see either any point why you would want to turn 88 into bluff. Plays decent postflop and nor you can't really 3bet it for value vs 4bb open.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to comment, we still have to CB to get rid of his weaker hands and should also have fold equity.

      Best Regards.
