      130 hands 26/19, 3bet 4, FCB 60, WTSD 43

      Should I bet turn and river? fold river? I dont see what is he raising. Only 44, or Jx, but Jx makes sense to bet on turn.

      Given that this is BvB, I think this is a very easy Turn bet. He should be 3betting TT+ a lot of the time, so that means we only lose to AJ and 99. I expect him to call the Turn again with all lower pocketpairs and Ace highs.

      When we get raised on the River, it's pretty much a WTF spot, he only reps 4X or some weirdly played 2X/JX hand.

      Think about whether he's capable of turning some random hands into a bluff. If yes, we call, if no we fold. If we have no idea, 88 is closer to the top of our range so we call.
