      I saw him barreling twice with air in the past .
      I called as bluff catch on the flop but I gave up on the turn.
      should I call until river against player who bluff often?

      Hey Daisuke3823,

      Typically it will not be profitable to call 88 OOP MP vs BTN. The only reason you would do so is if you felt you had odds/implieds to setmine. You likely don't in this situation unless CO will overcall with a very high frequency. I'd probably just fold pf.

      Another issue to consider is the fact that BTN fires into two players on the flop weighting his range towards value. If you were setmining it'd be an easy c/f. Given the reasons you called preflop you should probably float at least one street, but ideally you would not be in this position to start with.
