      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BTN): 100.5 BB
      SB: 115.9 BB
      BB: 158.6 BB
      UTG: 147 BB
      MP: 135.9 BB
      CO: 26 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 8:spade: A:diamond:

      fold, MP raises to 2 BB, fold, Hero raises to 8 BB, fold, BB calls 7 BB, fold

      Flop: (18.5 BB, 2 players) 6:heart: 5:club: 8:club:
      BB checks, Hero bets 9 BB, BB calls 9 BB

      Turn: (36.5 BB, 2 players) 8:diamond:
      BB checks, Hero bets 27 BB, BB calls 27 BB

      River: (90.5 BB, 2 players) 2:club:
      BB checks, Hero bets 56.5 BB and is all-in, BB calls 56.5 BB

      BB shows 5:spade: 5:diamond: (Full House, Fives full of Eights) (Pre 55%, Flop 96%, Turn 84%)
      Hero mucks 8:spade: A:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Eights) (Pre 45%, Flop 4%, Turn 16%)
      BB wins 193.5 BB

      I 3bet light because he calls 50% and folds 60% cbet flop, which makes my play profitable.

      The other guy I have only 33 hands, I saw him once limping, I raised 40, another guy raise 2.8 and this guy all in with QQ.

      So here I expected him to have overpairs, TT+
      I cbet because it still can come another 8 or A, and he might fold AJ-AQ.

      Were my bets on turn and river ok? I almost never see him here with set.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: I'd prefer to have more playable hands since he does call a fair amount of 3-bets (so at least suited hands).

      Postflop: As played I'd play it the same. We can't really fold the river or bet smaller when the flush gets there. And he wont fold often 99+ there anyway.
