      note:
      saw I think once that he called flop and folded turn in 3bet pot so he can be calling wide.


      have to 3bet semibluff this I guess. Cannot call OOP - too weak kicker, not knowing much about this oponent yet.

      He can be calling with 2nd pairs and I got more outs so bet the turn again.

      i think its fine to 3bet Q8s as a default against a wide open range of 80% with unknown fold to 3bet. when in doubt taking the aggressive line is good because we have fold equity. of course we can also fold its an ok option too.

      i think i would bet the turn bigger like 10 dollars for maximum fold equity. We have FD + OESD and are going in if he raises us so i think betting as big as possible here helps to fold out more hands like AJ or AQ or 9T that can find excuses to call.
