      You could even raise this pre-flop, I guess UTG is something like a fish?

      Post-flop all depends on your opponent. Is he passive and capable of slow-playing? If the answer is "no", then you can actually bet the river, too, because 8 doesn't change a thing there. K8 and 88 improve, but otherwise you are still in the same situation as you were on the flop.

      Betting against a fishy station here is fine, he' calling with plenty of worse combos. Checking-back against a solid opponent would be the best, as he has in his range some busted FD and he might turn them into a bluff and you would have to fold.

      I would bet R for thin value here. Since villain o/l EP I would expect his range to consist mostly AXs KXs, small PP's and SC's. Therefore on the R I don't expect him to be very strong or to bluff very often (since his open limp means he is probably passive)

      I think I am mostly bet/fold to a raise although I can only see us being beat on the river by something like 9T / Kc8c / 77 / 88 / KJ which would be pretty sick, given his F/T line which would be even less likely. Definitely think he calls with way worse on R to justify a thin value bet OOP since he is mostly checking behind eveything we beat.

      If villain was more aggro, I prefer x/c for bluff induce since I think he is more likely to be on a draw here.

      Hello CHARMANDER06,

      Preflop: Could easily isolate the limper.

      As played
      Postflop: Bet the flop & turn bigger. :) And could easily even value-bet the river cause clearly the guy could be holding weaker holdings there.

      Best Regards.
