      Fold pre flop according to SHC.

      On flop - as you are in the hand, with an over pair, a got-shot and as the pot is almost the size of your remaining stack size - I would bet all in too.

      Good luck

      I wouldn't push on the flop, I do play mostly pockets that aggressively when I hit the set but if I don't then I just check and call min bets if there aren't any higher cards on board or like on such situation there can be a straight. So: Check/fold after the flop but lets see what judges advice.

      Hi Termi8r,

      when you raise 88 pre flop this is nearly the best non set flop you can get, so yes well played nice hand nothing you can do when co or bu have an higher pair or set. both seem pretty fishy so I get my money in with a smile.


      Best Regards
