      BTN: $3.15 (78.8 bb)
      SB: $3.55 (88.8 bb)
      BB: $4 (100 bb)
      MP: $3.50 (87.5 bb)
      CO: $7.93 (198.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8 :diamond: 8 :heart:
      MP calls $0.04, CO folds, BTN raises to $0.08, SB folds, BB raises to $0.32, MP folds, BTN calls $0.24

      readless but looks fishy from stack size . I 3bet for value preflop against his min iso.

      Flop: ($0.70) J:spade: 3:spade: K:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.48, BTN raises to $2.83 and is all-in, BB folds

      on that flop ok to cbet? His range got pp's Ahigh and broadways ,sc's . And hit this board . But isnt too weak to just ch/fold ? on a 3bet his min open/pot

      Hi.

      Preflop 3bet doesnt seem so necessary. I would just flat here. 3betting makes more sense if u want to iso the fish but in this case i think both players are fishes so u dont mjnd having 3way action.

      On the flop i think betting or check folding are both fine. I personally would just check fold vs a more passive opponent. Dont expect him to turn so many hands into a bluff and 88 has decent showdown value vs a wide range.

      Thanks.

      Hi i 3bet cause its a min raise preflop . So i think my 88s are very good. Against a 3X , 4x i call.

      88 doesnt play so well. Most of his calling range will have two overs (kq aj at qt jt t9s) so your value is way too thin and besides u will have third pair on approxinately half the flops since 8 is the middle card and 88 plays better in a single raised pot. Tt is probably a reraise and 99 is a lot closer.
