      We have some sick dynamics, but mostly on the blinds, he can pull off some sick value bets on the river, yeah, because he knows i dont believe him and i call ligh. I think he would certainly value bet here AQ and KQ maybe, but i dont think i can value bet because i cbet flop 4 way so i dont think he will call with KQ/QJ. C/c ...c/f?

      I don't like the idea of c/c, I think you just pay off better hands. Given the board, I think we are not losing to much (he has 4 combos of 44/88 only) but at the same time we don't rep any air and I think it's really difficult to gain value from KQ.

      Check/fold seems kind of weak since we are hardly losing to anything.

      Betting seems kind of tough too since as I mentioned we are not gaining too much value.

      I think out of the 3 i prefer betting. Sometimes we occasionally get looked up by KQ, sometimes we get to fold out AQ. I'm not sure what happens, but I think the EV is higher is better than c/c or c/f. You can consider this as a Triple Merge bet.
