      Is 88 ok to 3bet from blinds? It is a bit hard to play, and if I miss, I can't have many value streets. But If I just call preflop, it is also hard to paly oop, and if hit set BU doesnt pay me off.

      Is my passive line ok with nuts? People often fold to cbet, so I wanted to keep him in.

      Hi,

      88 from BB is almost always a call here, unless you have aggro preflop dynamic, then you can 5bet jam vs a wide 4bet range.

      As played, I really see no reason for you to slowplay unless you think he has a high bet vs missed cbet stat. His bet size is kind of large but I think c/c is fine.

      On the turn, I don't see any reason why we should jam. He would jam most rivers with his value hands, and he can bluff. I don't think he bet/calls his flush draws and straight draws.

      Thanks.

      I was not sure if he bets again on river for value, since I called flop and turn big bet, and if he bluffs, he probably gives up.
      So I push, he just needs to pay 8$ to win 40, so I think he calls with his value hands, and also he can almost make correct call with fd, he can make mistake and call with gutshot, which maybe gives up on river. Beside that, if he has KK, QQ, and overcard or J comes, maybe he checks back river, or I would have to donk.

      Well u could have avoid such problems just by betting the flop yourself in the first place.
