      Should I raise preflop? I just checked because we have SD value with A high, but didn't really wanted to play a big pot with it. I'd raise if it was suited, because of the better playability. What would you play on the turn? He is quite fishy, can play draws or worse Ax this way, but I don't like stacking off under top2 in a limped pot, so the plan was call turn, and call river.

      I think you have value in raising A8o IP here vs a limp so I would definitely raise. Postflop seems OK to me. Top and middle is not strong enoug to stack off here for 100bb imo but it's also too strong to fold. I would play the same as you actually.
