      Hi guys
      I re-raised OOP with 88 from the button against a tight-aggressive player with VP 19 and AF 3.5. Should I rather have called in anticipation of hitting three-of-a-kind? What would you have done in this situation? Bobble

      Hi ooptix,

      pls try to use a better hand converter, it's a little hard to read.

      PF: I prefer to call here. This guy is tight, and I would only 3bet 88 as a merged value hand if I expected him to 4bet bluff a lot (then I could 5bet jam). 88 plays poorly in 3b pots.

      F: I think you can bet slightly smaller since it is a 3bet pot. He probably never folds his broadway straight draws anyway and always folds hands like 99.
