      I think 88xxx has too much value to waste it on a snow there. I'd choose something with blockers like AKxxx.

      Btw, I expect Huricano to post and disagree with me on all these hands. It's traditional.

      Once again, jb +1.

      You really should think about the concept behind snowing, what makes a good snow hand, and what doesn't. I know it's fancy in NL-world to just splash around saying I'll do this sometimes, or the dynamics are right, or I have a read about this player, but limit games (and no limit games also) don't work like this.

      88 9JQ in 2/4$ BBvsSB is a value raise not bluff.

      You're basically just 3-bet resteal AJ in Holdem and asking what do we think about your bluff...

      OTOH even if you have a marginal 3-bet, I would suggest calling to pick off some busto AK-high and lower pair turned into bluff (55-)
