      I thought this was a really weird play, villain is 26/20 so he's not crazy loose, I'd pretty much excluded J8 from his preflop utg range as I think that's a pretty loose raise even for him.

      I could find the fold button personally without info he doesn't need to have many j8 to make it unprofitable.

      Also we have a monster draw which is still a 40-60 underdog against set and if we raise the flop we are pretty much going with it, but he is not limited to sets and this could buy us the turn and gives us another way to win the pot.

      Raise flop 80-90 and i would check behind turn on a blank.

      Hi Sketchzr,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: We only lose to J8 so I doubt villain has that in his UTG range. So it should be an easy snap call with the "nuts" here plus nut redraw.
