      Hey,

      Is it fine to fold flop here because he cbets 3way? Call like 99+? TT+?

      It sucks that we're OOP.

      The fold is nitty but I never mind nitty folds against string actions of assumed fishy/passive players.

      There's not a big difference between 99 and 88 though so I can't recommend an exact hand to draw the line.

      If you know he is fishy though, I don't mind leading 88 here for value. BU will usually be honest and not hard to read his range once he calls or raises.

      Okay, I was also thinking about a lead. Then we're betting most of the turns because they could float us? Check/call turn doesn't seems great with a hand as weak as 88.

      Depends on how the board changes. We repeat the whole process really.. Can we get value if we bet, can we bluff, what's his range, how do we play rivers, etc.
