      It's very very very close. You have to call 4.05 to potentially stack off with the nuts and win a $56 pot. If we go by this you should call. There's a problem. Set of 8's will not always be the nuts. Being multiway you will get set over set a lot more often than HU, you will run into made straights and flushes on some boards as well so I think you'll be close to 0EV when calling but folding will be 0E without variance.

      LE: You can also overset some since people call lower pairs than 88 multiway here so I'm really not sure. It might be very slightly +EV. Depends on the rake as well, how you handle getting coolered here. If getting coolered tilts you, just fold here, you don't make much if any profit by calling.
